I use this in SQL :

Price = round(Price * 1.08, 2)

I need to do the same thing in C# for a Decimal field "Price".  
How do I do this?   thanks

thanks . .  I'm getting an error "operand * can't be applied to decimal . . .".

pv.Price = Math.Round((pv.Price * 1.08), 2);

any work around for that?

Assuming pv.Price is a decimal:

pv.Price = Math.Round((pv.Price * 1.08m), 2);

or

pv.Price = Decimal.Round((pv.Price * 1.08m), 2);
