#### How to get 2 decimal places?

```I have one session var and value of it will be double.How can i do it to be in 2 decimal places rounded up to nearest 5cents.
eg.21.781 -> 21.10
21.322 -> 21.05
45 -> 45.00```

Math.Round Method (Decimal, Int32, MidpointRounding)

Rounds a decimal value to a specified precision. A parameter specifies how to round the value if it is midway between two other numbers.
Namespace: System
Parameters

d

A decimal number to be rounded.

decimals

The number of significant decimal places (precision) in the return value.

mode

Specification for how to round d if it is midway between two other numbers.
Return Value
The number nearest d with a precision equal to decimals. If d is halfway between two numbers, one of which is even and the other odd, then mode determines which of the two numbers is returned. If the precision of d is less than decimals, then d is returned unchanged.

Remarks
The decimals parameter specifies the number of significant decimal places in the return value and ranges from 0 to 28. If decimals is zero, an integer is returned.
The behavior of this method follows IEEE Standard 754, section 4. The kind of rounding that is performed if mode is ToEven is sometimes called rounding to nearest, or banker's rounding.

Hi myaung,
Based on your description, you need to format the number in 2 decimal places and rounded it up to nearest 5 cents. But according to your exmaple, I am really confused: I have no idea why 21.781 comes into 21.10 instead of 21.80.
Here I have do a example for you. Have a try on it and tell me is it what you are looking for.
Function doNum(ByVal n As Double) As String
doNum = Format(Math.Round(n * 2, 1) / 2, "0.00")
End FunctionBest Regards,Shengqing YangPlease remember to click “Mark as Answer” on the post that helps you, and to click “Unmark as Answer” if a marked post does not actually answer your question. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread : )```
