Best Answer

Your question asks more questions than the question it's self.

If you mean:

1) the nearest 1/2 ie 9.75 = 10.0


2) literally the nearest .5 ie 9.75 = 9.5

... then your question is asked in two different ways.

1) Round your decimal answer to the nearest 1/2


2) Round your answer to the nearest NON integer divisible by .5.

hope that helps.
