Round Method (Double, Int32, MidpointRounding)

Math.Round Method (Double, Int32, MidpointRounding)


Rounds a double-precision floating-point value to a specified number of fractional digits. A parameter specifies how to round the value if it is midway between two numbers.

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

public static double Round(
	double value,
	int digits,
	MidpointRounding mode


Type: System.Double

A double-precision floating-point number to be rounded.

Type: System.Int32

The number of fractional digits in the return value.

Type: System.MidpointRounding

Specification for how to round value if it is midway between two other numbers.

Return Value

Type: System.Double

The number nearest to value that has a number of fractional digits equal to digits. If value has fewer fractional digits than digits, value is returned unchanged.

Exception Condition

digits is less than 0 or greater than 15.


mode is not a valid value of System.MidpointRounding.

Notes to Callers:

Because of the loss of precision that can result from representing decimal values as floating-point numbers or performing arithmetic operations on floating-point values, in some cases the Round(Double, Int32, MidpointRounding) method may not appear to round midpoint values as specified by the mode parameter. This is illustrated in the following example, where 2.135 is rounded to 2.13 instead of 2.14. This occurs because internally the method multiplies value by 10digits, and the multiplication operation in this case suffers from a loss of precision.

using System;

public class Example
   public static void Main()
      double[] values = { 2.125, 2.135, 2.145, 3.125, 3.135, 3.145 };
      foreach (double value in values)
         Console.WriteLine("{0} --> {1}", value, 
                           Math.Round(value, 2, MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero));

// The example displays the following output:
//       2.125 --> 2.13
//       2.135 --> 2.13
//       2.145 --> 2.15
//       3.125 --> 3.13
//       3.135 --> 3.14
//       3.145 --> 3.15
