I am using the following formula to track sou singles bowling tournament.

=AVERAGE (210-E2)*90%+ROUNDDOWN(F2,0)

The average function when done is 47.7, which should be rounded down to 47.  Excel keeps rounding up to 48.   What am I doing?

The formula as you present it calculates an average and then adds the rounded(down) value of whatever is in F2. So, what's in F2?


Perhaps you want it this way:

=ROUNDDOWN(AVERAGE (210-E2)*90%,0)

When apply Average formula it gives results 37.7 or with XX.XX decimals and added with round down (example result 10), in that case, result will be 37.7 + 10 = 47.7 , to get round off figure
prefix with round formula
=round(AVERAGE (210-E2)*90%+ROUNDDOWN(F2,0),0)

Average formula have not rounded, that is why getting decimals

Second part of Rounddown formula only rounded figure, 



It works for tne one cell.  Copy/paste  gives the same number for rest of column

Thanks for the help.  It still rounds up if .06 or more and down if .05 or less.  I added another column to the right of the calculation and stipulated no decimals and blacked out the other column.

@LEEWOOL Not sure I follow. Is the problem solved?
