## Enum RoundingMode

• All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<RoundingMode>

```public enum RoundingMode
extends Enum<RoundingMode>```
Specifies a rounding behavior for numerical operations capable of discarding precision. Each rounding mode indicates how the least significant returned digit of a rounded result is to be calculated. If fewer digits are returned than the digits needed to represent the exact numerical result, the discarded digits will be referred to as the discarded fraction regardless the digits' contribution to the value of the number. In other words, considered as a numerical value, the discarded fraction could have an absolute value greater than one.

Each rounding mode description includes a table listing how different two-digit decimal values would round to a one digit decimal value under the rounding mode in question. The result column in the tables could be gotten by creating a `BigDecimal` number with the specified value, forming a `MathContext` object with the proper settings (`precision` set to `1`, and the `roundingMode` set to the rounding mode in question), and calling `round` on this number with the proper `MathContext`. A summary table showing the results of these rounding operations for all rounding modes appears below.

This `enum` is intended to replace the integer-based enumeration of rounding mode constants in `BigDecimal` (`BigDecimal.ROUND_UP`, `BigDecimal.ROUND_DOWN`, etc. ).

• #### CEILING

`public static final RoundingMode CEILING`
Rounding mode to round towards positive infinity. If the result is positive, behaves as for `RoundingMode.UP`; if negative, behaves as for `RoundingMode.DOWN`. Note that this rounding mode never decreases the calculated value.

Example:

Rounding mode CEILING Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `CEILING` rounding
5.5 6
2.5 3
1.6 2
1.1 2
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -1
-1.6 -1
-2.5 -2
-5.5 -5
• #### DOWN

`public static final RoundingMode DOWN`
Rounding mode to round towards zero. Never increments the digit prior to a discarded fraction (i.e., truncates). Note that this rounding mode never increases the magnitude of the calculated value.

Example:

Rounding mode DOWN Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `DOWN` rounding
5.5 5
2.5 2
1.6 1
1.1 1
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -1
-1.6 -1
-2.5 -2
-5.5 -5
• #### FLOOR

`public static final RoundingMode FLOOR`
Rounding mode to round towards negative infinity. If the result is positive, behave as for `RoundingMode.DOWN`; if negative, behave as for `RoundingMode.UP`. Note that this rounding mode never increases the calculated value.

Example:

Rounding mode FLOOR Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `FLOOR` rounding
5.5 5
2.5 2
1.6 1
1.1 1
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -2
-1.6 -2
-2.5 -3
-5.5 -6
• #### HALF_DOWN

`public static final RoundingMode HALF_DOWN`
Rounding mode to round towards "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round down. Behaves as for `RoundingMode.UP` if the discarded fraction is > 0.5; otherwise, behaves as for `RoundingMode.DOWN`.

Example:

Rounding mode HALF_DOWN Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `HALF_DOWN` rounding
5.5 5
2.5 2
1.6 2
1.1 1
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -1
-1.6 -2
-2.5 -2
-5.5 -5
• #### HALF_EVEN

`public static final RoundingMode HALF_EVEN`
Rounding mode to round towards the "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case, round towards the even neighbor. Behaves as for `RoundingMode.HALF_UP` if the digit to the left of the discarded fraction is odd; behaves as for `RoundingMode.HALF_DOWN` if it's even. Note that this is the rounding mode that statistically minimizes cumulative error when applied repeatedly over a sequence of calculations. It is sometimes known as "Banker's rounding," and is chiefly used in the USA. This rounding mode is analogous to the rounding policy used for `float` and `double` arithmetic in Java.

Example:

Rounding mode HALF_EVEN Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `HALF_EVEN` rounding
5.5 6
2.5 2
1.6 2
1.1 1
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -1
-1.6 -2
-2.5 -2
-5.5 -6
• #### HALF_UP

`public static final RoundingMode HALF_UP`
Rounding mode to round towards "nearest neighbor" unless both neighbors are equidistant, in which case round up. Behaves as for `RoundingMode.UP` if the discarded fraction is ≥ 0.5; otherwise, behaves as for `RoundingMode.DOWN`. Note that this is the rounding mode commonly taught at school.

Example:

Rounding mode HALF_UP Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `HALF_UP` rounding
5.5 6
2.5 3
1.6 2
1.1 1
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -1
-1.6 -2
-2.5 -3
-5.5 -6
• #### UNNECESSARY

`public static final RoundingMode UNNECESSARY`
Rounding mode to assert that the requested operation has an exact result, hence no rounding is necessary. If this rounding mode is specified on an operation that yields an inexact result, an `ArithmeticException` is thrown.

Example:

Rounding mode UNNECESSARY Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `UNNECESSARY` rounding
5.5 throw `ArithmeticException`
2.5 throw `ArithmeticException`
1.6 throw `ArithmeticException`
1.1 throw `ArithmeticException`
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 throw `ArithmeticException`
-1.6 throw `ArithmeticException`
-2.5 throw `ArithmeticException`
-5.5 throw `ArithmeticException`
• #### UP

`public static final RoundingMode UP`
Rounding mode to round away from zero. Always increments the digit prior to a non-zero discarded fraction. Note that this rounding mode never decreases the magnitude of the calculated value.

Example:

Rounding mode UP Examples
Input Number Input rounded to one digit
with `UP` rounding
5.5 6
2.5 3
1.6 2
1.1 2
1.0 1
-1.0 -1
-1.1 -2
-1.6 -2
-2.5 -3
-5.5 -6
