Dear teachers ,

Can I say :

1/ My exam score is 4.5 , so the teacher will sure

2/ My exam score is 4.25 , so the teacher will sure

3/ I bought a shirt for VND 50,025 , so the cashier rounded it off to VND 50,000.

4/ Since the purchase price was an odd number , so the cashier rounded it off to the nearest dollar /dong / yen

5/ Since the purchase price was an odd number , so the cashier rounded it off .

Thank you very much.

If it's more than 0 but less than .49999 (etc.) you round DOWN.

I'm not familiar with any teacher who will round up a 4.25 to a 5.

Your use of "round off" is okay, but don't use both "since" and "so."

BarbaraPANew2grammarAnyway the main point to learn here is that when you 'round up' you make the number bigger and when you 'round down' you make the number smaller.

nona the brit2/ My exam score is 4.25 , so the teacher will sure

round it down / off to 4.I wonder whether "round off "can be used for both directions :up and down.i.e can I say " My exam score is 4.25 , so the teacher will sure

round it off to 4 "instead of" round it down to 4 ". Similarly , can I say "" My exam score is 4.75 , so the teacher will sureround it off to 5 " instead of " round it up to 5 "Your explanation would be highly appreciated

Best wishes

TuongvanBarbaraPATuongvanTuongvani need examples for each case of round up & round down respectively

if the integer is over five and below five, what's the different answer of each case of

round up & round down.
