The ROUNDDOWN function works like the ROUND function, except the ROUNDDOWN function will always round numbers down. The number of places to round to is controlled by the num_digits argument. Positive numbers round to the right of the decimal point, negative numbers round to the left, and zero rounds to the nearest 1. The table below summarizes this behavior:
Round down to nearest .1, .01, .001, etc.
Round down to nearest 10, 100, 1000, etc.
Round down to nearest 1
Example #1 - round to right
To round down values to the right of the decimal point, use a positive number for digits:
=ROUNDDOWN(A1,1)// Round down to 1 decimal place=ROUNDDOWN(A1,2)// Round down to 2 decimal places=ROUNDDOWN(A1,3)// Round down to 3 decimal places=ROUNDDOWN(A1,4)// Round down to 4 decimal places
Example #2 - round to left
To round down values to the left of the decimal point, use zero or a negative number for digits:
=ROUNDDOWN(A1,0)// Round down to nearest whole number=ROUNDDOWN(A1,-1)// Round down to nearest 10=ROUNDDOWN(A1,-2)// Round down to nearest 100=ROUNDDOWN(A1,-3)// Round down to nearest 1000=ROUNDDOWN(A1,-4)// Round down to nearest 10000
Example #3 - nesting
Other operations and functions can be nested inside ROUNDOWN. For example, to round down the result of A1 divided by B1, you can use a formula like this:
=ROUNDDOWN(A1/B1,0)// round down result to nearest integer
The ROUNDDOWN function rounds a number down to a given number of places. The number of places is controlled by the number of digits provided in the second argument (num_digits). For example, these formulas round the...
The Excel INT function returns the integer part of a decimal number by rounding down to the integer. Note the INT function rounds down, so negative numbers become more negative. For example, while INT(10.8) returns 10, INT(-10.8) returns...
The Excel TRUNC function returns a truncated number based on an (optional) number of digits. For example, TRUNC(4.9) will return 4, and TRUNC(-3.5) will return -3. The TRUNC function does no rounding, it simply truncates as specified.
