**Common Questions About the MROUND Formula:**

• What does the MROUND formula do?

• What are the arguments of the MROUND formula?

• How can the MROUND formula be used in a formula?

• How is the MROUND formula different from the ROUND function?

**How Can the MROUND Formula Be Used Appropriately:**

• The MROUND formula can be used to round a given number to the nearest multiple of specified value, for example round a number to the nearest tenth or the nearest hundred.

• The MROUND formula can be used to calculate the tax or sales tax on an amount with ease.

• The MROUND formula can be used to round a number up or down during calculations like the total cost of an item after taxes.

**How Can the MROUND Formula Be Commonly Mistyped:**

• Mistyping the number of arguments – The MROUND formula should have two mandatory arguments, the number to be rounded and the multiple to round the number to.

• Typo with parentheses – The parentheses must be closed properly for the formula to run.

**What Are Some Common Ways the MROUND Formula Is Used Inappropriately:**

• Using the MROUND formula to round numbers instead of using the ROUND formula – The MROUND formula will always round to a multiple, while the ROUND formula can be used to round to the nearest decimal, such as rounding 3.33 to 3.5.

• Unnecessary nesting of the MROUND formula when another formula can be used – The MROUND formula should not be nested within another formula when the same result can be achieved with a simpler formula.

**What Are Some Common Pitfalls When Using the MROUND Formula:**

• Forgetting to specify the multiple to round to – The second argument of the MROUND formula must be a number that specifies the multiple to round the given number to.

• Forgetting to add a closing parenthesis – All formulas require parentheses to be properly closed or the formula will not work.

**What Are Common Mistakes When Using the MROUND Formula:**

• Forgetting to include the whole number – The first argument of the MROUND formula must include the whole number to be rounded, not just the decimal portion of the number.

• Rounding to the wrong multiple – Make sure to check what multiple is specified before the MROUND formula is used, as accidentally specifying a different multiple can lead to inaccurate results.

**What Are Common Misconceptions People Might Have With the MROUND Formula:**

• Thinking the MROUND formula rounds numbers like the ROUND formula does – The MROUND formula does not round numbers like the ROUND formula does, as it is only used to round to a multiple.

• Thinking the MROUND formula can only be used to round down – The MROUND formula can also be used to round up just the same to the nearest multiple.
