# Round function within a formula

Options
edited 12/09/19

Hi!

I am trying to round 2 numbers, multiply them and then take that sum and multiply it by another number.  In excel it is =round(A1,2)*round(A2,2)*A4.  I am having issues duplicating this in smartsheet. What am I doing wrong?  I have rounded down the columns, yet when doing the calculation with out the round function, it takes the extended value of the column, not the rounded number.

Thank you,

Suzanne

Have you tried the ROUND(number, [decimal_places]) function?

So in your example: (assuming you want to round to 2 decimal places)

=(ROUND(A1, 2) * ROUND(A2, 2))* A4

if you want to round to a whole number

=(ROUND(A1) * ROUND(A2))* A4 or =(INT(A1) * INT(A2))* A4

Check out the function sheet reference

Thank you Frank.  That worked.  It was a matter of using the correct number of parentheses.  I find using formulas in smartsheet a little frustrating.  I tried the link to the examples, but it said I do not have access.  Anyway, thank you for the help.
