## The Formula

The formula for rounding a number to the nearest multiple of another number is:

Round(Number / Multiple) * Multiple

Where:

• Number: The number you want to round to the nearest multiple.
• Multiple: The number you want to round to the nearest multiple of.

The formula works by first dividing the number by the multiple to get the number of times the multiple goes into the number. It then rounds this result to the nearest whole number using the round function. Finally, it multiplies the rounded result by the multiple to get the rounded value.

## An Example

Suppose you have a quantity of 18.7 units and you want to round it to the nearest multiple of 5. Using the Round to Nearest Multiple Calculator, you can enter the values as follows:

• Number: 18.7
• Multiple: 5

When you click "Calculate," the calculator will apply the formula and return the rounded value of 20, which is the nearest multiple of 5 to 18.7.

## Real-Life Applications

The Round to Nearest Multiple Calculator can be useful in many real-life situations. For example:

• When pricing products, retailers may choose to round prices to certain increments, such as \$0.99 or \$5.
• When calculating quantities of materials, such as lumber or flooring, contractors may need to round to the nearest whole unit.
• In financial calculations, such as mortgage payments or loan amortization, rounding to the nearest penny or dollar may be required.

Using the Round to Nearest Multiple Calculator can save time and effort in these types of situations and help ensure accuracy in calculations.
