# Round to the Nearest Cent Calculator

If you're dealing with a money amount problem and want your answer to be rounded to the nearest cent, this calculator is the tool you need. **You only need to input the amount of money to round, and the calculator will do its job.**

To know how this calculator works and learn how to round to the nearest cent, keep reading this article, where we explain what rounding to the nearest cent means and present a couple of examples.

## What does round to the nearest cent mean

Rounding to the nearest cent implies **approximating a money amount to two decimals (which represent the number of cents)**, applying the following rules:

- If the third decimal digit is lower than 5, we leave the second decimal digit as it is. E.g.,
**$4.563 ≈ $4.56**. - If the third decimal digit is 5 or greater, we round up the second decimal digit (increase it by one unit). E.g.,
**$4.567 ≈ $4.57**.- Additionally, if the second decimal digit is 9, we change it to zero and increase the first decimal digit by one unit. E.g.,
**$3.0975 ≈ $3.10**, and**$2.797212 ≈ $2.80**. If the first decimal digit (and the next ones) is also 9, we do the same for it and the figures to the left of it. E.g.,**$3.9975 ≈ $4.00**, and**$2.997212 ≈ $3.00**.

- Additionally, if the second decimal digit is 9, we change it to zero and increase the first decimal digit by one unit. E.g.,

The previous rules describe the most common **rounding mode**: *half-up*, which rounds "halves" towards the upper neighbor and is used by default in this calculator (you can change it in the **advanced mode**). Visit our rounding calculator article to learn more about *half-up* and the other rounding modes.

🙋 If the money amount has **fewer than two decimal digits**, you don't need rounding, as there are no cents! However, you can pad the number with : they will not change its value!

🙋 As you can see, rounding to the nearest cent is the same as we do in our round to the nearest hundredth calculator but applied to an amount of money.
