# Blog Post: BigDecimal rounding to the nearest 5 cents with Java’s BigDecimal

Recently I hat to implement a function that would round to the nearest 5 cents and after googling around a bit I found bits and pieces here and there but none just worked for me, so below you can find a function that should do just that

/**

* Rounds a decimal number to the nearest 5 cents using the following rules

*

* Rounding rules :

* - 0.1299 = 0.10

* - 0.1300 = 0.15

* - 0.1799 = 0.15

* - 0.1800 = 0.20

*

* @param value the BigDecimal value to round

* @return the rounded value for the big decimal with a scale of 2

*/

public static BigDecimal roundToNearest5Cents(final BigDecimal value) {

return value.setScale(2, RoundingMode.FLOOR).multiply(new BigDecimal(20)).add(new BigDecimal("0.5"))

.setScale(0, RoundingMode.FLOOR).divide(new BigDecimal(20)).setScale(2, RoundingMode.FLOOR);

}
