I have the following block of code:

    Private Sub CalculatePreQualifyingMoneyPayoutBelowFirstPlace(ByVal Position As Integer)
        BasePayout = GetBaseAmount(Position)
        MultiplicationOfBasePayoutAndPurseRemainder = BasePayout * PurseRemainder
        AdditionalPayout = MultiplicationOfBasePayoutAndPurseRemainder / QualifyingMoneyTotal
        AdditionalPayout = Math.Round(AdditionalPayout)
    End Sub

Now, it should round to the value of AdditionalPayout up, but how do I do it to the nearest hundred?  Now, this doesn't mean the nearest hundredth, it means to the nearest 100.

For example,

Assume the following
Dim BasePayout, PurseRemainder, MultiplicationOfBasePayoutAndPurseRemainder, AdditionalPayout, QualifyingMoneyTotal as Decimal

BasePayout = 9000
PurseRemainder = 112000
QualifyingMoneyTotal = 480000

I want AdditionalPayout to equal 2300, not 2250 as the calculation, without the rounding, would total.

Thanks in advance!
