How to round the numeric value?

Kindly tell me that how can we round the numeric value?
Example: 1.2 = 1.5, 1.7 = 2.0

I don't know what that is, but it's not rounding. If you're rounding
to the nearest whole, 1.2 would round to .0 not 1.5. Even if you are
rounding to the nearest half, 1.7 would round to 1.5.

actually trying to accomplish.

I don't know what that is, but it's not rounding. If you're rounding
to the nearest whole, 1.2 would round to .0 not 1.5. Even if you are
rounding to the nearest half, 1.7 would round to 1.5.

The OP could certainly use ROUNDUP on the 1.7 value, but the only way of
making 1.2 show as 1.5 (AFAIK) would be to use an IF statement..

How to round the numeric value?

In addition to what ozgrid.com provided (which will round UP to the next
nearest .5 boundary), look at
=MROUND(1.2,0.5)
Since MROUND() rounds up,the effect in this case is the same as
CIELING(1.2,0.5). Plus, MROUND() requires that the Analysis ToolPak add-in
be active/installed.

Just another alternative. You can also look at FLOOR() if you need to round
DOWN.

I think you need =ROUND(A2/0.5,0)*0.5
Here are examples of results from CEIL, MROUND and ROUND
number =CEILING(A2,0.5) =MROUND(A2,0.5) =ROUND(A2/0.5,0)*0.5
1.45 1.5 1.5 1.5
1.5 1.5 1.5 1.5
1.7 2 1.5 1.5
1.9 2 2 2
2 2 2 2
2.1 2.5 2 2
2.45 2.5 2.5 2.5
2.5 2.5 2.5 2.5

MROUND(1.2,0.5) is 1, whereas CEILING(1.2,0.5) is 1.5.

MROUND rounds; CEILING rounds up. Since the latter provides the result that
Saeed requested (based on his two examples), CEILING is the correct function
to use.

Of course, that begs the questions of whether the two examples sufficiently
demonstrate the kind of rounding that Saeed really wants, and whether his two
examples correctly reflect what he wants. I would like to have seen more
examples, notably 1.1 and 1.6.

But Saeed said that 1.7 should become 2. So by your own examples, CEILING
is the only one of those 3 formulas that works for both examples that Saeed
gave. (However, Saeed might have misrepresented his requirements.)

Of course, Saleed could use ROUNDUP(A1*2,0)/2, which should be functionally
equivalent to CEILING(A1,0.5).

I say "should be" because with Excel, one can never be sure. Sh*t happens!

How to round the numeric value?

Quite right, thanks for the correction. I'd actually thought MRound()
rounded, but read something in Help that led me in the other direction -
quite possibly I was looking at CEILING() help and thinking MROUND().

As for what the OP really wants? Who knows, I think everyone is doing the
typical, reasonable thing -- interpreting based on example data/results
provided, which is often quite full of holes.

ROUND or CEILING/FLOOR

Hello, it would depend on what kind of rounding off you want.

If you just want to round everything up, CEILING Function is the way to go, for an immediate rounding down, we just use floor.

=CEILING(Number to be rounded off, significance)
=FLOOR(Number to be rounded off, significance)

For both cases, significance just means by what increments do you want this number to be rounded off to.

For the more intuitive function, we can use the ROUND Function in Excel. To use this, we have:

=ROUND(number to be rounded off, how many decimal places you want)

so for the how many decimal places you want, essentially, if you want to round if off to the nearest 10s, you just put there -1, nearest hundreds -2. And if you want more decimal places, then you just put 1, 2,3 so on and so forth.

Hope this helps!
