Math.round()

The Math.round() function returns the value of a number rounded to the nearest integer.

Syntax

Math.round(x)

Parameters

x
A number.

Description

If the fractional portion of number is 0.5 or greater, the argument is rounded to the next higher integer. If the fractional portion of number is less than 0.5, the argument is rounded to the next lower integer.

Because round() is a static method of Math, you always use it as Math.round(), rather than as a method of a Math object you created (Math has no constructor).

Examples

Using Math.round()

// Returns the value 20
x = Math.round(20.49);

// Returns the value 21
x = Math.round(20.5);

// Returns the value -20
x = Math.round(-20.5);

// Returns the value -21
x = Math.round(-20.51);

// Returns the value 1 (!)
// Note the rounding error because of inaccurate floating point arithmetics
// Compare this with Math.round10(1.005, -2) from the example below
x = Math.round(1.005*100)/100;

Decimal rounding

// Closure
(function() {
  /**
   * Decimal adjustment of a number.
   *
   * @param {String}  type  The type of adjustment.
   * @param {Number}  value The number.
   * @param {Integer} exp   The exponent (the 10 logarithm of the adjustment base).
   * @returns {Number} The adjusted value.
   */
  function decimalAdjust(type, value, exp) {
    // If the exp is undefined or zero...
    if (typeof exp === 'undefined' || +exp === 0) {
      return Math[type](value);
    }
    value = +value;
    exp = +exp;
    // If the value is not a number or the exp is not an integer...
    if (isNaN(value) || !(typeof exp === 'number' && exp % 1 === 0)) {
      return NaN;
    }
    // Shift
    value = value.toString().split('e');
    value = Math[type](+(value[0] + 'e' + (value[1] ? (+value[1] - exp) : -exp)));
    // Shift back
    value = value.toString().split('e');
    return +(value[0] + 'e' + (value[1] ? (+value[1] + exp) : exp));
  }

  // Decimal round
  if (!Math.round10) {
    Math.round10 = function(value, exp) {
      return decimalAdjust('round', value, exp);
    };
  }
  // Decimal floor
  if (!Math.floor10) {
    Math.floor10 = function(value, exp) {
      return decimalAdjust('floor', value, exp);
    };
  }
  // Decimal ceil
  if (!Math.ceil10) {
    Math.ceil10 = function(value, exp) {
      return decimalAdjust('ceil', value, exp);
    };
  }
})();

// Round

Math.round10(55.549, -1);  // 55.5
Math.round10(55, 1);       // 60
