You can use the following functions to round numbers in R:

**round(x, digits = 0)**: Rounds values to specified number of decimal places.**signif(x, digits = 6)**: Rounds values to specified number of significant digits.**ceiling(x)**: Rounds values up to nearest integer.**floor(x)**: Rounds values down to nearest integer.**trunc(x)**: Truncates (cuts off) decimal places from values.

The following examples show how to use each of these functions in practice.

**Example 1: round() Function in R**

The following code shows how to use the **round()** function in R:

#define vector of data data #round values to 1 decimal place round(data, digits = 1) [1] 0.3 1.0 2.7 5.0 8.9

**Example 2: signif() Function in R**

The following code shows how to use the **signif()** function to round values to a specific number of significant digits in R:

#define vector of data data #round values to 3 significant digits signif(data, digits = 3) [1] 0.30 1.03 2.67 5.00 8.91

**Example 3: ceiling() Function in R**

The following code shows how to use the **ceiling()** function to round values up to the nearest integer:

#define vector of data data #round values up to nearest integer ceiling(data) [1] 1 2 3 5 9

**Example 4: floor() Function in R**

The following code shows how to use the **floor()** function to round values down to the nearest integer:

#define vector of data data #round values down to nearest integer floor(data) [1] 0 1 2 5 8

**Example 5: trunc() Function in R**

The following code shows how to use the **trunc()** function to truncate (cut off) decimal places from values:

#define vector of data data #truncate decimal places from values trunc(data) [1] 0 1 2 5 8
