 # Round Up To Nearest X`

• Hello. First post here. I trying to make a formula that will multiply a cell by 1.43 and then round the total up to the nearest 45 or 95 with no decimal points. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

Try something like this to round up the value in cell B1:

=ROUNDUP((B1*1.43)/45,0)*45

That doesn't seem to be working. It just rounds it to the nearest multiple of ten. I think i'm a little further along now though. This will round to 95 everytime...
=ROUNDUP((C2*1.25),-2)-5
Now I just need to find out how to add the round to 45 in there.

Datzneat,

Please do not add code tags to formulas. You can if you like add formula tags like this (new feature of website:

[noparse][f]=roundup (c2, -2) -5[/f][/noparse]

gives

[f]=roundup (c2, -2) -5[/f]

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

I attached a sample of the formula I posted and it seems to work. Unless, I don't understand what you want...

Yea i'm still seeing the wrong numbers with these. It should only be coming up with numbers that end in 45 or 95.
ie.
11 would be 45
32 would be 45

46 would be 95
1865 would be 1895

and so forth.

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

See if this gets us any closer.

That's incorrect.

11 * 1.43 = 15.73, rounded up to multiple of 45 is 45, to 95 is 95, smaller is 45
32 * 1.43 = 45.76, rounded up to multiple of 45 is 90, to 95 is 95, smaller is 90
46 * 1.43 = 65.78, rounded up to multiple of 45 is 90, to 95 is 95, smaller is 90
1896 * 1.43 = 2711.28, rounded up to multiple of 45 is 2745, to 95 is 2755, smaller is 2745

I don't get what you're saying shg... those were just examples of what i need the numbers to round to, all multiplying aside.

The problem with that code Jim is that it isn't just one code. It is multiple codes, and i'm not sure if rounddown is the best way to do it...

Is there a way to work an OR statement into : =ROUNDUP((C2*1.25),-2)-5

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

Hi shg,

I think OP is still struggling with how to say what they want. I don't think they meant a "multiple", just something else.

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

Datzneat, is what you mean that the number * 1.43 should be rounded up to the nearest number ending in 45 or 95?

That is correct sir. Sorry if i sound like a bumbling idiot on here lol.

See if this gives the results you expect:

[COLOR="Blue"]= 1.43 * A1- MOD( 1.43 * A1, 100) + IF( MOD( 1.43 * A1, 100) > 45, 95, 45 )[/COLOR]

Looks damn good to me. It's sad how close I was to getting that same formula. Thanks everyone.

EDIT: Sorry. Krish's worked. I'll still check out the one you gave me shg.

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

Same results shg. Thanks again for all of your help!

• Re: Round Up To Nearest 45 Or 95

Great. Kris's formula is much cleaner -- wish I'd seen that solution.

15000*1.43=21450
but result is 21495 with both fomula.
