# Math (rounding to the nearest hundreth)

Dunno, maybe this is a stupid question, but I've had trouble finding anything about rounding numbers in basic C++. I'm sorta new at this so if yall could give me a bit of help on this. Anyways, later!

Here is some code for a console app that should help:
[code]
[green]#include [/green]
[green]#include [/green]

[b]int[/b] main([b]int[/b] argc, [b]char[/b] *argv[])
{
[b]float[/b] f;
[b]float[/b] rounded;
f = 2.71828182845904523536028747135266;
rounded = (int)(f*100); [italic]// rounded = 271[/italic]
cout << rounded;
cout << '
'; [italic]// break the line[/italic]
rounded /= 100; [italic]// rounded = 2.71[/italic]
cout << rounded;
[b]while[/b] (0==0) [italic]// keep the console open so you can see the outputs[/italic]
{}
[b]return[/b] 0;
}[/code]

The "(int)" means the result of the multiplication is truncated. It is a little different from rounding. With normal rounding, it would round up to 2.72 but instead the rest of the number is ignored.

[blue]If you would rather have the value rounded and not truncated, see red[/blue]
• Thanks a lot! These are a lot simpler than the way I figured out. Awesome.
