Hi

I would like to convert some numbers to the nearest multiples of 5 but could not get things right.

Basically for numbers like 21.2 I want it to be rounded up to 25 and for numbers like say 37, I want it to be rounded to 40.

Appreciate if anyone could give me an insight how to do this.

Thanks
Joseph

Try

5*Int ((A+5)/5)
