If I have a number 2495, then this should be rounded to 2400

If I have 6321 , then 6300
 123456 , would be 123400

Relying on the behavior of integer division, you could do:

int number = 6321;
int rounded = (number / 100) * 100;

You need to subtract off the remainder that is left over when you divide by 100.  To do this use the modulo operator.

double abc_1   = 2495;
double abc_1_m = abc_1 - abc_1 % 100;

double abc_2   = 6321;
double abc_2_m = abc_2 - abc_2 % 100;

double abc_3   = 123456;
double abc_3_m = abc_3 - abc_3 % 100;

Open in new window


If you wanted 123456 to be rounded to 123000 then you would subtract (123456 modulo 1000) from 123456 instead of subtracting (123456 modulo 100) from 123456:

double abc_3   = 123456;
double abc_3_m = abc_3 - abc_3 % 1000;

Both Kaufmed and e_livesay, have simple and effective solutions that work equally well.

As e_livesay alluded to, if your stipulation changes (where you have to worry about 10's or 1000's), then you have to make sure to change the equation.

That's exactly what integer division does  ; )

Agreed - the solutions are equivalent.  Didn't see your response until I'd written mine.

All good. I mistook the "... when you divide by 100" to be pseudo-directed at me  = )

@kaufmed.

No problem.  Wondered if it might look like that after I saw that your post had come in before mine.  Not directed at you at all.
