Note that the second parameter is supposed to be the multiple you want. Ie you want 3.34... rounded to the nearest 1.5.

Multiples of 1.5 are 0, 1.5, 3, 4.5 so the result will be 3.

If you want values of 3.58 you need to have some multiple of that number. So dividing it by 2, gives 1.79.

Multiples of 1.79 are 0, 1.79, 3.58 and 3.34 will round to 3.58.

However, I'm having a hard time seeing how this is actually what you would want. But it will answer the question you've asked.

`X = round(3.340422, 1.79);`

@vinod4842 Note that I've modified your subject line to Round as it's slightly more descriptive than 'SAS'. Please recall that our goal on here is to both answer your question and future users.

WHAT'S THE RULE? WHY IS IT 3.58 AND NOT 3.59, OR 3.78?
