# round

Round to nearest decimal or integer

## Syntax

## Description

`Y = round(`

rounds each element of
`X`

)`X`

to the nearest integer. In the case of a tie, where an
element has a fractional part of `0.5`

(within roundoff error)
in decimal, the `round`

function rounds away from zero to the
nearest integer with larger magnitude.

## Examples

## Input Arguments

## Tips

`format short`

and`format long`

both display rounded numbers. This display can cause unexpected results when combined with the`round`

function.For display purposes, use

`sprintf`

to control the exact display of a number as a string. For example, to display exactly 2 decimal digits of`pi`

(and no trailing zeros), use`sprintf("%.2f",pi)`

.
