# How to Round Down in Excel: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re an Excel user, you know how important it is to have a good grasp of the various functions available for calculations. Among these functions is ROUND DOWN, which rounds values down based on the given number of decimal places. In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to use this function effectively.

To start, enter the equal sign and type in the function “ROUNDDOWN” in the cell where you want the rounded value to appear. Then, include two things in the function: the cell that contains the number you want to round down, and the number that identifies how many decimal places there should be in the result.

For example, to round down to one decimal place, type “1” in the function. To round down to two decimal places, use “2”. By using positive numbers, you can round down to any number of decimal places.

To round down a value to a whole number, enter “0” in the function. Excel will round the value down, making it a whole number.

To round down to tens or hundreds, use negative numbers in the formula. For instance, to round down to the nearest ten, enter “-1” into the formula. Excel will calculate it for you immediately.

Similarly, to round down to the nearest hundred, type in “-2” in the formula.

Excel offers multiple rounding functions, and each will help you round numbers in a different way. If you want to learn more about similar functions like Round or Round Up, you can watch the rest of the video tutorials on rounding numbers by EasyClick Academy.
