# Decimal.Round Method (Decimal, Int32)

.NET Framework (current version)

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

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

## Syntax

```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

Exception Condition
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 banker's rounding. It minimizes rounding errors that result from consistently rounding a midpoint value in a single direction.

## Examples

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

```Public Module Example
Public Sub Main()
' Define a set of Decimal values.
Dim values() As Decimal = { 1.45d, 1.55d, 123.456789d, 123.456789d,
123.456789d, -123.456d,
New Decimal(1230000000, 0, 0, true, 7 ),
New Decimal(1230000000, 0, 0, true, 7 ),
-9999999999.9999999999d,
-9999999999.9999999999d }
' Define a set of integers to for decimals argument.
Dim decimals() As Integer = { 1, 1, 4, 6, 8, 0, 3, 11, 9, 10}

Console.WriteLine("{0,26}{1,8}{2,26}",
"Argument", "Digits", "Result" )
Console.WriteLine("{0,26}{1,8}{2,26}",
"--------", "------", "------" )
For ctr As Integer = 0 To values.Length - 1
Console.WriteLine("{0,26}{1,8}{2,26}",
values(ctr), decimals(ctr),
Decimal.Round(values(ctr), decimals(ctr)))
Next
End Sub
End Module
' The example displays the following output:
'                   Argument  Digits                    Result
'                   --------  ------                    ------
'                       1.45       1                       1.4
'                       1.55       1                       1.6
'                 123.456789       4                  123.4568
'                 123.456789       6                123.456789
'                 123.456789       8                123.456789
'                   -123.456       0                      -123
'               -123.0000000       3                  -123.000
'               -123.0000000      11              -123.0000000
'     -9999999999.9999999999       9    -10000000000.000000000
'     -9999999999.9999999999      10    -9999999999.9999999999
