I need to know how to round to the nearest quarter and tenth.

Right now i am taking to times finding the difference and then trying to round to the nearest quarter or tenth. Which ever i choose.

I have this for code.

I made a class to call, In my class i have this.

``````namespace WindowsFormsApplication3
{
class Time
{
public Time(string a)
{
}

public string Times(string textBox1, string textBox2)
{

DateTime Time1 = DateTime.Parse(textBox1);
DateTime Time2 = DateTime.Parse(textBox2);
TimeSpan result = Time2 - Time1;
int Hours = result.Hours;
decimal Min = result.Minutes;

decimal decTime = Hours + (((Min * 100) / 60) / 100);
decTime = Math.Round(decTime, 2);
return decTime.ToString();

}
}
}``````

This is what is in the form itself.

``````private void radioButton3_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if ((textBox6.Text != "") || (textBox7.Text != ""))
{
textBox19.Text = new Time("").Times(textBox6.Text, textBox7.Text);
decimal dec = Convert.ToDecimal(textBox19.Text);

dec = Math.Floor(dec);
dec = Math.Round(dec, 2);
textBox19.Text = dec.ToString();

if (textBox10.Text != "")
{
decimal Min = Convert.ToDecimal(textBox10.Text);
dec = dec - convertToDec(Min);
textBox19.Text = dec.ToString();
}
}
else
{
MessageBox.Show("Must be a start/stop time");
}

}``````

what if the number im trying to round is a decimal.?

Be careful when using Math.Round, if you aren't familiar with how it works you may find some odd results. By default it uses MidPointRounding.ToEven which means that 4.5 would round to 4 not 5 as you might expect. Use the overloaded method to specify the MidPointRounding.AwayFromZero for the traditional rounding.

Not sure what you are asking. Math.Round accepts decimals if you want to round to a specific number of digits. If you are asking how do I round a decimal to the closest fraction of number, think powers of ten and use some basic math skills.

your right. there was an error in my code. I had a piece of code that rounded to a whole number before trying to round to the nearest quarter or tenth like i wanted.

but thanks for the help none the less.
