While this is very helpful, sometimes you don’t really want to work with numbers like decimals.
In certain cases, rounding your data up best suits your needs.
In this article, we’ll show you how to round in excel.
If you use Excel a lot, you have probably noticed that it is frequently used to organize data in numerical form.
It wouldn’t be very convenient if you had to go through and round each of those numbers individually.
Luckily, Excel makes it easy to round multiple numbers at once while still using its rounding function.
Zeros will appear where there is no information in the first column.
Additionally, if you need to enter more information, anything entered in column A will automatically incorporate the function in column B; the zero will then change to reflect the newly entered number.
Excel will automatically drag your function formula down through the selected cells.
Rounding is often used in business when dealing with money amounts or sales.
Instead of reporting in a meeting, “we sold ,999,956.97 worth of products this year,” it is easier to say “we sold about million worth of products this year.” If a business is looking for an estimate of numbers, they can easily use Excel to do so.
First of all, if you are working with decimals, it can be such a pain to record them.
Even worse, if you are presenting these numbers to someone out loud, reading decimals can get tedious. Whole numbers can be rounded too, most often to the nearest 10.
Select the column next to your first number and type the function =ROUND(A1,2).
