# Apply Rounding Rules

Hi,
I want perform price rounding operation as follows

1. When Price > 0 and Price < 500 make it multiple of 10
2. When Price > 0 and Price < 500 end price with 1.1
3. When Price > 0 and Price < 500 make it multiple of 10 and end with 1.1

It can be to round to nearest, round up or round down operation,

For eg.
With 3 rd point operation round to nearest--> I should get -->
Old Value      Round to near                   Round Up                                  Round Down
-8.00                -8.00                                 -8.00                                   -8.00
0.00                  0.00                                   0.00                                   0.00
0.50                11.01                                  11.01                                  1.01
5.00                11.01                                  11.01                                  1.01
12.99              11.01                                  21.01                                  1.01
79.99              81.01                                101.01                                 69.01

Please provide some hints, formulas. with sql or vb 6 program

Can you rephrase the question for the hard of thinking.

Conditions 1, 2 and 3 are all the same. i.e. When Price > 0 and Price < 500

Youer examples do not tally with statements 1, 2 or 3.

Generally If you look at integer division for rounding it becomes a little clearer.

1. (x / r) * r

essentially 'compresses' the scale of all numbers by a factor 'r'. I.e. any exact multiple of 'r' and all numbers following it up to - but not including - the next multiple of r becomes the factor.

E.G.

(x / 10) * 10

forces 0,1,...,9 to become 1.

2. x % r (or x MOD r)

delivers the fractional part (remainder) of function '1'.

Between these two functions and an 'if' you can generally achieve any form of rounding you want.

e.g. working in pence, rounding to the nearest pound with 50p rounding up, use:

((x / 100) * 100) + (x % 100 >= 5?1:0)

Good luck!
