Just like numbers, you can round percentage values in Excel. A percentage is a decimal number that is formatted as a percentage. A 100% means a number value of 1. To round percentages, you can use the ROUND, ROUNDUP, and ROUNDDOWN functions. In this tutorial, you will learn to write a formula for this.

Round Percentage with ROUND Function

The below example shows the percentage value of 30.49% and 30.50%. Now, when you use the ROUND function and the 2 for the num_digits, it rounds the first percentage value to 30% and the second to 31%.


In the first value, you have .49 as a decimal value, which is why it rounds to 30%. And in the second value, you have .50 as a decimal value, and it rounds it to 31%.

Round Percentage to One Decimal

If you want to round a percentage value to one decimal, you need to use a formula just like the following:

Round Down the Percentage

If you want to round down a percentage, you can use the ROUNDDOWN. Just like the below example where you have the percentage 30.49%.


In the first formula, you have 30.49%, and we have used 2 as a num_digit to round. It returns 30.00%. And in the second formula, you have 30.49%, and we have used 3 as num_digit to round. It returns 30.40% in the result.

Round Up the Percentage

In the same way, you can use the ROUNDUP to round the percentage upwards.
