but n+1 is in the next set. the range should be from n to
n+0.999999999999(recurring)

example.

Here are 10 numbers ( fairly equally distributed between 0 and 1, i.e they
are not biased toward either end) , round them to the nearet integer, then
take the average. Also take the average of the numbers - they should be the
same if the rounding method works


0.05  0.15  0.25  0.35  0.45  0.55  0.65  0.75  0.85  0.95

rounded intergers are: 0  0  0  0  0  1  1  1  1  1 (my method)
average of integers is 0.5

average of actual numbers is 0.5

Regards, Kevin
