# Rounding numbers in JavaScript

Last updated: July 4, 2022.

Basic rounding methods are available on the in-built `Math` object. For rounding to a fixed number of decimal points, the `toFixed()` method is available on numeric data.

## Rounding to an integer value

### Round to nearest integer with `Math.round()`

To round a number to its nearest integer value, use the `Math.round()` method:

``````Math.round(10.2); // 10
Math.round(1.5); // 2
Math.round(-7.2); // -7

// null and Boolean values are coerced to a number!
Math.round("abc"); // NaN
Math.round(null); // 0
Math.round(false); // 0
Math.round(true); // 1
``````

### Rounding up with `Math.ceil()`

`Math.ceil()` rounds up to the nearest integer:

``````Math.ceil(10.2); // 11
Math.ceil(3); // 3
Math.ceil(-5.9); // -5

Math.ceil(null); // 0
Math.ceil(false); // 0
``````

### Rounding down with `Math.floor()`

`Math.floor()` rounds down:

``````Math.floor(10.2); // 10
Math.floor(3); // 3
Math.floor(-5.9); // -6

Math.floor(null); // 0
Math.floor(false); // 0
``````

## Rounding to a fixed number of decimal places

Applying the `toFixed()` method to a numeric value will round it to a given number of decimal places.

The output is of type string. You can convert it back to a numeric value with `Number()`.

``````const value = 5.2431;

let a = value.toFixed(0);
let b = value.toFixed(2);
let c = value.toFixed(4);

console.log(typeof a, typeof b, typeof c); // "string", "string", "string"

Number(a); // 5
Number(b); // 5.24
Number(c); // 5.2431
``````
