Brain Burp Rounding??
Harold M Hallikainen email (remove spam text)
If the digit beyond what you are rounding is higher than 5, round up,
lower than 5, round down. If equal to 5, round to the even digit. For
3.4 rounds to 3
3.5 rounds to 4
3.6 rounds to 4
4.4 rounds to 4
4.5 rounds to 4
4.6 rounds to 5
Using this "even digit" method (though an odd will also work), errors do
not accumulate as multiple random rounded numbers are added.
