# How should I be rounding a number to 2 decimal places?

Hi I am currently trying to round an average, that looks like this:

``````MATCH (this)-[:HAS_RATING]-(r:Rating)
WITH avg(r.rating) AS ratingAverage
RETURN round(ratingAverage, 2)
``````

This, however, returns:

``````Too many parameters for function 'round' (line 3, column 20 (offset: 105))
"RETURN round(ratingAverage, 2)"
^
``````

Based on Neo4j docs this should be all I need, any ideas? Thank you in advance!

You want to use:

built-in `round()` rounds to nearest int.

I also made a PULL REQUEST. I added missing documentation for the Rounding Modes.

"google is your friend" is what landed me here: Mathematical functions - numeric - Cypher Manual

That not working is what landed me here: How should I be rounding a number to 2 decimal places?

Thanks for sharing the apoc library version.

The APOC was in the second spot in Google. Google doesn't always get what you want in the first place!

Hello @geronimo4j

Since Neo4j 4.2, your query is valid: Mathematical functions - numeric - Cypher Manual

For previous versions, I was not using APOC:

``````MATCH (this)-[:HAS_RATING]-(r:Rating)
WITH avg(r.rating) AS ratingAverage
RETURN round(ratingAverage * 100) / 100 AS ratingAverage
``````

argh!

Another take home lesson. Make sure you are looking at the latest version of the documentation!

4.2 doc shows all the variants of round that are available for that version:

4.1 doc doesn't show the new variants:

(4.1 doc probably should probably mention that 4.2 has more options.)

Google here, won't point you to the latest doc, unfortunately.

Hello,
Sorry raw newbie here!
Does round work with AS in a query?

The query above correctly returns my table, but i can't seem to find a way to reduce the remainder precision of the averages!
Any help greatly appreciated.

you could use apoc.number.format, for example

``````return apoc.number.format(1234.34343,'.##')
``````

which returns

``````1234.34
``````
