Python round up to nearest 10

  • by

Use the Python round() function to round up to the nearest 10. You must divide the value by 10, round the result to zero precision, and multiply by 10 again.

Or you can pass a negative value for precision. The negative denotes that rounding happens to the left of the decimal point.

Python rounds up to the nearest 10

A simple example code takes the number from the user and rounds the value to its nearest 10 using the round() function.

number = int(input('Enter a number: '))
rounded = round(number/10)*10

print('Rounded Number :', rounded)


Python round up to nearest 10

Using a negative number as the second argument

rounded = round(number, -1)

You can use math.ceil() to round up, and then multiply by 10

import math

def roundup(x):
    return int(math.ceil(x / 10.0)) * 10
