Rounding Numbers
Excel provides quite a few functions that round values in various ways. Table 10-2 summarizes these functions.
It's important to understand the difference between rounding a value and formatting a
value. When you format a number to display a specific number of decimal places, for-
mulas that refer to that number use the actual value, which may differ from the dis-
played value. When you round a number, formulas that refer to that value use the roun-
ded number.
