# ROUNDDOWN DAX Function

The ROUNDDOWN function always rounds a number down, toward zero.

DAX Syntax ROUNDDOWN(Number, NumberOfDigits)

The function has the following parameters: ** • number:** A real number that we want rounded down. ** • NumberOfDigits:** The number of digits to which we want to round. Negative rounds to the left of the decimal point; zero to the nearest integer.

Note: The ROUNDDOWN behaves like ROUND, except that it always rounds a number down. The INT function also rounds down, but with INT the result is always an integer, whereas with ROUNDDOWN we can control the precision of the result.

Example 1: The following example rounds 5687.576 down to one decimal places. The expected result is 5687.50.
