public enum RoundingMode extends Enum<RoundingMode>
Each rounding mode description includes a table listing how
different twodigit decimal values would round to a one digit
decimal value under the rounding mode in question. The result
column in the tables could be gotten by creating a
BigDecimal
number with the specified value, forming a
MathContext
object with the proper settings
(precision
set to 1
, and the
roundingMode
set to the rounding mode in question), and
calling round
on this number with the
proper MathContext
. A summary table showing the results
of these rounding operations for all rounding modes appears below.

Enum Constant Details

UP
Rounding mode to round away from zero. Always increments the digit prior to a nonzero discarded fraction. Note that this rounding mode never decreases the magnitude of the calculated value.Example:
Rounding mode UP Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withUP
rounding5.5 6 2.5 3 1.6 2 1.1 2 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 2 1.6 2 2.5 3 5.5 6 
DOWN
Rounding mode to round towards zero. Never increments the digit prior to a discarded fraction (i.e., truncates). Note that this rounding mode never increases the magnitude of the calculated value.Example:
Rounding mode DOWN Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withDOWN
rounding5.5 5 2.5 2 1.6 1 1.1 1 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 1 1.6 1 2.5 2 5.5 5 
CEILING
Rounding mode to round towards positive infinity. If the result is positive, behaves as forRoundingMode.UP
; if negative, behaves as forRoundingMode.DOWN
. Note that this rounding mode never decreases the calculated value.Example:
Rounding mode CEILING Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withCEILING
rounding5.5 6 2.5 3 1.6 2 1.1 2 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 1 1.6 1 2.5 2 5.5 5 
FLOOR
Rounding mode to round towards negative infinity. If the result is positive, behave as forRoundingMode.DOWN
; if negative, behave as forRoundingMode.UP
. Note that this rounding mode never increases the calculated value.Example:
Rounding mode FLOOR Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withFLOOR
rounding5.5 5 2.5 2 1.6 1 1.1 1 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 2 1.6 2 2.5 3 5.5 6 
HALF_UP
Rounding mode to round towards "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round up. Behaves as forRoundingMode.UP
if the discarded fraction is ≥ 0.5; otherwise, behaves as forRoundingMode.DOWN
. Note that this is the rounding mode commonly taught at school.Example:
Rounding mode HALF_UP Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withHALF_UP
rounding5.5 6 2.5 3 1.6 2 1.1 1 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 1 1.6 2 2.5 3 5.5 6 
HALF_DOWN
Rounding mode to round towards "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round down. Behaves as forRoundingMode.UP
if the discarded fraction is > 0.5; otherwise, behaves as forRoundingMode.DOWN
.Example:
Rounding mode HALF_DOWN Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withHALF_DOWN
rounding5.5 5 2.5 2 1.6 2 1.1 1 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 1 1.6 2 2.5 2 5.5 5 
HALF_EVEN
Rounding mode to round towards the "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case, round towards the even neighbor. Behaves as forRoundingMode.HALF_UP
if the digit to the left of the discarded fraction is odd; behaves as forRoundingMode.HALF_DOWN
if it's even. Note that this is the rounding mode that statistically minimizes cumulative error when applied repeatedly over a sequence of calculations. It is sometimes known as "Banker's rounding," and is chiefly used in the USA. This rounding mode is analogous to the rounding policy used forfloat
anddouble
arithmetic in Java.Example:
Rounding mode HALF_EVEN Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withHALF_EVEN
rounding5.5 6 2.5 2 1.6 2 1.1 1 1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 1 1.6 2 2.5 2 5.5 6 
UNNECESSARY
Rounding mode to assert that the requested operation has an exact result, hence no rounding is necessary. If this rounding mode is specified on an operation that yields an inexact result, anArithmeticException
is thrown.Example:
Rounding mode UNNECESSARY Examples Input Number Input rounded to one digit
withUNNECESSARY
rounding5.5 throw ArithmeticException
2.5 throw ArithmeticException
1.6 throw ArithmeticException
1.1 throw ArithmeticException
1.0 1 1.0 1 1.1 throw ArithmeticException
1.6 throw ArithmeticException
2.5 throw ArithmeticException
5.5 throw ArithmeticException
