AppleScript's "**round**" **command** works only to round a number to its **nearest integer**, for example:

## Applescript:

round (75.6) --> 76

But how would you round, say 76.5436 to 76.54? Since the round command always produces an integer, you first **multiply** the real number by 100, **round it**, then divide by 100. For example:

## Applescript:

(round (75.5436 * 100)) / 100 --> 75.54

Similarly, to get three decimal places you would use 1000:

## Applescript:

(round (75.5436 * 1000)) / 1000 --> 75.544

You can also use this common routine:

## Applescript:

roundThis(75.5436, 1) --> 75.5

on roundThis(n, numDecimals)

set x to 10 ^ numDecimals

(((n * x) + 0.5) div 1) / x

end roundThis
