This is a documentation subpage for Template:Rnd (see that page for the template itself).
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

Usage[edit source]

This template rounds parameter 1 by parameter 2 decimal places (goes the other way for negative rounding) and includes trailing zeros.

{{rnd|54.376|2}}     gives 54.38
{{rnd|54.376|-1}}   gives 50
{{rnd|68.4273E12|-10}} gives 6.843×1013

For example, rounding by 1 gives 1 decimal digit, rounding by 0 gives integers, or rounding by -2 gives the amount in hundreds. Scientific notation is displayed for numbers greater than or equal to 1×10Template:Val/delimitnum, or less than 1×10Template:Val/delimitnum.

Examples:

  • {{rnd|2.0004|3}} gives 2.000
    • whereas {{#expr:2.0004 round 3}} gives 2
  • {{rnd|0.000020004|7}} gives 2.00×10−5
  • {{rnd|0|8}} gives 0.00000000
  • {{rnd|154268|-3}} gives 154,000
  • {{rnd|154568|-3}} gives 155,000
  • Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Template invocation' not found.
    • whereas Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Template invocation' not found., even though Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Template invocation' not found. (see m:Help:Format produced by expr)

As with #expr, the total number of significant digits is not more than 14:

  • Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Template invocation' not found.
  • Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Template invocation' not found.

Internal details[edit source]

The markup-based version of Template:rnd uses three subtemplates:

  • {{rnd/-}} — for trailing zeros
  • {{rnd/e+}} — for scientific notation for numbers greater than or equal to 109 or less than or equal to −109
  • {{rnd/e−}} — for scientific notation for numbers greater than −10−4 and less than 10−4 but not equal to zero

The Lua-based version of {{rnd}} uses Module:Math and always has an expansion depth of 3. However, the markup-based version has an expansion depth of 9–15, which depends on the size of the numbers (integer results use depth 9, decimals use depth 12), where astronomical numbers can hit expansion depth of 15 levels, for {{rnd|56.44e33|-32}} → 5.64 × 1034.

TemplateData[edit source]

This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools.

TemplateData for Rnd
