# How would I round to the nearest 50 via script?

Well, the title kinda says it all. I want to know if there’s a way if I can round to the nearest 50, and if so, how I would do it. For example, a player has 2347 XP, so it would automatically round to 2350, or the player has 4318, so it would round to 4300.

Result = Number - Number % 50

Would be how you do it, although this only rounds it down

That will only round down. To round something to the nearest `x` you would have to make use of `math.round`:

``````local function roundNumberToNearest(x, nearest)
return math.round(x / nearest) * nearest
end
``````

Basically how this function works is it takes any number, converts it to a “unit” (or percent of `nearest`) form, then rounds it, and finally multiplies back up.

Think of it this way:

• We have a number, `95`
• We want to round it to the nearest `50`
• `95` is `190%` of `50`
• We want the percent rounded to the nearest `100%`
• `190%` is nearest to `200%`
• `200%` of `50` is `100`
