ROUND(X,D)

This function returns X rounded to the nearest integer. If a second argument, D, is supplied, then the function returns X rounded to D decimal places. D must be positive or all digits to the right of the decimal point will be removed. Consider the following example −

SQL>SELECT ROUND(5.693893);
+---------------------------------------------------------+

|
ROUND(5.693893) |
+---------------------------------------------------------+

|
6 |

TRUNCATE(X,D)

This function is used to return the value of X truncated to D number of decimal places. If D is 0, then the decimal point is removed. If D is negative, then D number of values in the integer part of the value is truncated. Consider the following example −

SQL>SELECT TRUNCATE(7.536432,2);
+---------------------------------------------------------+

|
TRUNCATE(7.536432,2) |
+---------------------------------------------------------+

|
7.53 |
