The documentation for the round() function states that you pass it a number, and the positions past the decimal to round. Thus it should do this:
n = 5.59 round(n, 1) # 5.6
But, in actuality, good old floating point weirdness creeps in and you get:
For the purposes of UI, I need to display
5.6. I poked around the Internet and found some documentation that this is dependent on my implementation of Python. Unfortunately, this occurs on both my Windows dev machine and each Linux server I’ve tried. See here also.
Short of creating my own round library, is there any way around this?
Now we will see solution for issue: round() doesn’t seem to be rounding properly
I can’t help the way it’s stored, but at least formatting works correctly:
'%.1f' % round(n, 1) # Gives you '5.6'
