Round

The Round() function rounds a number.

Rounding a number can be done according to different strategies when it comes to the edge cases (like x.5). WEM uses the Banker's Rounding strategy because of its statistical superiority and standard use in financial and statistical operations. Mind, this only applies to the Mid-Point values: the middle of the spectrum, where a decision needs to be made which way to go. So if you expect 3.85 to be rounded to 3.9 (away from zero), you'll be surprised to see WEM shows 3.8 (Banker's).
