# Rounding in formula indicators

Formula indicators round fractional results using Banker's rounding or mathematical rounding depending on the indicator Precision.

When a formula indicator has a Precision of 0, the indicator rounds the result to the nearest even, whole number. For example, if a formula indicator with Precision 0 calculates the values 7 + (5 / 2), the indicator rounds the result up to 10. However, if the formula calculates 2 + (5 / 2), the indicator rounds the result down to 4.

When a formula indicator has a Precision greater than 0, the indicator rounds to the nearest decimal point for the given precision. For example, a formula indicator with Precision 1 rounds a result of 4.45 to 4.5.

Y-axis values plotted on a line or column chart are not rounded. The score and tooltip displayed when you point to a value on the chart are rounded based on the indicator Precision.

Note: Rounding applies only to the formula result. Values within the formula are not rounded.
