# Decimal.Round Method (Decimal, Int32)

.NET Framework 4.5

Rounds a Decimal value to a specified number of decimal places.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

## Syntax

```'Declaration
Public Shared Function Round ( _
d As Decimal, _
decimals As Integer _
) As Decimal
```

#### Parameters

d
Type: System.Decimal

A decimal number to round.

decimals
Type: System.Int32

A value from 0 to 28 that specifies the number of decimal places to round to.

#### Return Value

Type: System.Decimal
The decimal number equivalent to d rounded to decimals number of decimal places.

## Exceptions

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

decimals is not a value from 0 to 28.

## Remarks

This method is equivalent to calling the Round(Decimal, Int32, MidpointRounding) method with a mode argument of MidpointRounding.ToEven.When d is exactly halfway between two rounded values, the result is the rounded value that has an even digit in the far right decimal position. For example, when rounded to two decimals, the value 2.345 becomes 2.34 and the value 2.355 becomes 2.36. This process is known as rounding toward even, or rounding to nearest. It minimizes rounding errors that result from consistently rounding a midpoint value in a single direction.

## Examples

The following code example rounds several Decimal values to a specified number of decimal places using the Round method.
