# roundn

Round a numeric value to the nearest multiple of 10^n.

## Installation

`npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-roundn`

## Usage

`var roundn = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-roundn' );`

#### roundn( x, n )

Rounds a `numeric` value to the nearest multiple of `10^n`.

```// Round a value to 2 decimal places:
var v = roundn( 3.141592653589793, -2 );
// returns 3.14

// If n = 0, `roundn` behaves like `round`:
v = roundn( 3.141592653589793, 0 );
// returns 3.0

// Round a value to the nearest thousand:
v = roundn( 12368.0, 3 );
// returns 12000.0```

## Notes

• When operating on floating-point numbers in bases other than `2`, rounding to specified digits can be inexact. For example,

```var x = 0.2 + 0.1;
// returns 0.30000000000000004

// Should round to 0.3...
var v = roundn( x, -16 );
// returns 0.3000000000000001```

## Examples

```var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var roundn = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-roundn' );

var x;
var n;
var v;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
x = (randu()*100.0) - 50.0;
n = roundn( randu()*5.0, 0 );
v = roundn( x, -n );
console.log( 'x: %d. Number of decimals: %d. Rounded: %d.', x, n, v );
}```

## Notice

This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
