Where is the Nearest 25 Cents’ Place?

The nearest 25 cents of an amount of money is the sequence 00, 25, 50 or 75 two places to the right of the decimal separator after the amount has been rounded depending on the value of the nearest penny.

This basically means that the thousandths’ place of any amount of money determines the value of the nearest quarter!

How do you Round to the Nearest 25 Cents?

How do you round money to the nearest quarter? We employ divisions with remainders, aka modulo operation, as explained here.

Check the two digits sequence xy to the right of the decimal point of nearest cent value.

If xy mod(25) <= 12 we round down; the nearest quarter is xy - xy mod(25).
If xy mod(25) > 12 we round up; the nearest quarter is xy + (25 – xy mod(25)). In case of rounding up and the nearest quarter ending in “.00”, the amount’s ones place has to be increased by 1.

It follows from the formula that if xy is 00, 25, 50 or 75 we don’t do anything.

For example:

  • $3.12: 12 mod(25) = 12, so we round down: $3 + (0.12 – 0.12) = $3.00
  • $8.38: 38 mod(25) = 13, so we round up: $8 + (.38 + .12) → $8.50
  • $11.95: 95 mod(25) = 20, so we round up: $11 + (.95 + (.25 -.20)) to .00 and therefore increase the ones’ value to 2 → $12.00

In the table below you can find some amounts in dollar rounded to nearest quarter.

However, the term round up to the nearest 25 cents means that all division remainders are rounded up by changing xy to xy + (25 – xy mod(25)), and increasing the ones’ value by 1 in case xy + (25 – xy mod(25)) = “.00”. For example: $8.01 → $8.25.
