Rounding numbers in recent additionsIn "recent additions", I read about "rounding numbers". igloo myrtilles fourmis #2 20060206 09:11:06
Re: Rounding numbers in recent additionsYes, I need to write a much lengthier article about methods of rounding. Floor, ceiling, rounding 5 up on even or odd, etc. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20060401 14:33:34

Re: Rounding numbers in recent additions
That could be a very large pitfall though because people can choose their rounding method to make their data fit better. Although in most cases it's not going to make a big difference. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
