## Programming Language

JavaScript [Version: ECMAScript (ECMA-262)]

## Syntax

## Typical Usage

Returns the value of a number rounded to the nearest integer.

## Accepted Parameters

**value**The decimal number you wish to round off.*(float)*(Required):

## Return Value(s)

Returns the rounded number.## Notes

If the fractional portion of the **value** is greater than 0.5, the **value** is rounded to the next integer. If it is less than 0.5, the argument is rounded to the lower integer. If the fractional portion is exactly 0.5, the argument is rounded to the next integer in the direction of +∞. This differs from some other languages’ **round()** functions, which often round to the next integer away from zero, instead giving a different result in the case of negative numbers with a fractional part of exactly 0.5.
