The CINT function rounds decimal point numbers up or down to the nearest INTEGER value.

## Syntax

value% = CINT(expression)

## Parameter(s)

- expression is any TYPE of literal or variable numerical value or mathematical calculation.

## Description

- Values greater than .5 are rounded up. Values lower than .5 are rounded down.
*Warning:*Since CINT is used for integer values, the input values cannot exceed 32767 to -32768!- Use CLNG for LONG integer values exceeding INTEGER limitations.
- Note: When decimal point values are given to BASIC functions requiring INTEGERs the value will be CINTed.

## Example(s)

Shows how CINT rounds values up or down as in “bankers’ rounding”.

```
a% = CINT(1.49): b% = CINT(1.50): c = 11.5
COLOR c: PRINT a%, b%, c
```

```
1 2 11.5
```
