Math.round() will always roun up to nearest high value.

For e.g

Math.round(9.4)=9 // any value <9.5 will be rounded to 9<br /> Math.round(9.5)=10 // any value >=9.5 will be rounded to 10

Math.round(9.6)=10 //

Math.round(-9.5)= -9 // Note here -9.5 > -9.6 hence all the

numbers which are >=-9.5 will be

rounded to -9 which is a bigger number

than -10.

Math.round(-9.4)= -9 // -9.4>-9.5 hence -9

Math.round(-9.6)=-10 // since -9.6<-9.5<br /> Remember that -9 >-10

I hope u r clear

Hi Varsha.The general rule about rounding is :

round() will give the closest result to the argument passed to it. So from 0.0 to 0.4 it will give 0.0(nearest lower number) and from 0.5 to 1.0 it will give 1.0(nearest higher number).When u give a middle range argument(like 0.5) it will give the next higher number(like 1.0).

For negative numbers , -9 is greater than -9.5 thus u get round(-9.5) as -9 which is nearest higher number.

For -9.6 the nearest lower number is -10.0 thus round(-9.6) is -10.
