dCode allows rounding (or approximate value) from an exact value, to the desired number, the rounded default is closest (approximation), ie the upper value if the decisive digit is greater than or equal to 5 and the lower value if the decisive digit is less than 5.
Round to ones (no decimal dot), round to tenth (1 one decimal place), round to hundredth (2 two decimal places) or round to thousands (3 three decimal places).
Example: 3.15 is rounded to 3.2 with 1 digit after decimal point (to tenth)
Some textbooks refer to rounding to + infinity for rounding up or - infinity for rounding down, or to 0 for rounding down positive numbers and rounding up negative numbers.
Monetary notations (euros, dollars, etc.) use a 2-digit precision format
dCode calculates the nearest multiple (rounded up/superior or rounded down/inferior to the multiple).
Example: 123 can be rounded to the closest multiple of 5 so: 125.
The ceiling rounding (or rounding by excess) is in the upper rounding.
Example: 1.2 is ceil rounded to 2
Floor rounding (or rounding by default) is the lower rounding.
Example: 1.7 is floor rounded to 1
Truncation is the removal of digits beyond a certain precision, without taking into account any rounding.
Example: 2.89 truncated to 1 decimal value gives 2.8
The significant digits are the figures (of a decimal number) known with certainty. They depend on the measuring tool, but also on the rounding done.
Example: 0.0123 has 3 significant digits (1,2,3)
