# RoundingMode.Down

RoundingMode.Down (1) is an enumeration that specifies rounding direction when there is a tie between the possible numbers to round to. It is a member of the RoundingMode.Type and indicates rounding down.

## Examples

Below examples round the main value to 3 decimals. The value 9.5555 has four decimals and needs to get rid of one. `RoundMode.Up` makes sure that the rounding of the 4th decimals happens downward, since it is exactly half.

``````= Number.Round( 9.5555, 3, 1 )                 // Returns 9.555
= Number.Round( 9.5555, 3, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9.555
= Number.Round( 9.5554, 3, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9.555``````

When the decimal to round is higher than half, it is also rounded up to the closest numbers that’s higher.

``= Number.Round( 9.6650, 2, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9.65``

Note that when Number having fewer decimals than instructed by the rounding, the entire value is returned unrounded.

``= Number.Round( 9.55, 3, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9.55``

You can find an example for all functions supporting the RoundingMode.Type below.

``````= Number.Round( 9.5, 0,    RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9
= Byte.From(    9.5, null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9
= Int8.From(    9.5, null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9
= Int16.From(   9.5, null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9
= Int32.From(   9.5, null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9
= Int64.From(   9.5, null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9

// Functions returns a maximum of 4 decimals
= Currency.From( 9.665412345, null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9.6654
= Currency.From( 9.665,       null, RoundingMode.Down ) // Returns 9.665``````
