  • User-2097295820 posted

    I want to round up in .net and it just does not seem to work.

    Let say 3.145.  I want to round this 3.15.

    I use the the Math.round() and I get    3.14

    Is there any algorithm that can help me round up accurately in .net. 

    3.145   to  3.15

    I need this because I am sending values to payment gateway. There as to be accuracy.

    Have you tried Math.Round(value,2,MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero) ? Try  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.midpointrounding(v=vs.110).aspx for details.

    It seems that you are using the float data type that’s why you are not getting the desired result.

    If you use double data type it will provide you the required result.

    float a = 3.145f;
    Math.Round(a, 2, MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero);


    double a = 3.145;
    Math.Round(a, 2, MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero);



    It happens because when you convert from float to double you will not get the exact data.


    float a = 3.145f; 
    double b = Convert.ToDouble(a); Write(b); 

    value of b: 3.14499998092651

    you can see that the value is not exactly same when converting from float to double. that's why you may get undesired result.
