Wordless Wednesday: My First Rounding Down!

round up

My grocery total was rounded down yesterday.  I can’t help but wonder how much these two pennies will cost the government and businesses alike – someone had to program all of those computers, after all.  And while I appreciate that it’s likely still less expensive than making new coins, the economics of the “round down” doesn’t make sense to me.  But hey, if a store wants to take $.02 off my grocery bill, that’s fine by me!

    Will you feel the same way when they round it up? Because if your total end in 3,4,8,9 that’s what if going to happen, rounding up.

    doesn’t rounding up only happen at 6,7,8,9 and rounding down 1,2,3,4 that was my impression. I’ve had to argue several times when the cashier has wanted to charge me too much.
