# ODD

Formulas / ODD
Round up a number to the next odd integer.
`ODD(number)`
• number - the value to round

## Examples

• `ODD(5.1)`

The ODD function will also return the nearest odd integer when given a decimal. For example, this will return 7, as 7 is the nearest odd integer to 5.1.

• `ODD(-2)`

The ODD function can also be used with negative numbers. For example, this will return -3, as -3 is the nearest odd integer to -2.

• `ODD(-5.1)`

Similarly, this will return -7, as -7 is the nearest odd integer to -5.1.

## Summary

The ODD function is a mathematical tool that can be used to round numbers away from zero in a quick and efficient manner.

• The ODD function rounds a numeric argument up to the next integer number, away from zero.
• The numeric argument is required, and must be a number.

What is the ODD function?
The ODD function is a mathematical formula that rounds a number to the nearest odd integer.
Where is the ODD function used?
The ODD function is often used in statistical calculations, financial calculations and scientific calculations.
How do you use the ODD function?
To use the ODD function, enter the number you want to round into the formula, followed by the ODD function. The result will be the nearest odd integer.
What are some examples of using the ODD function?
• If you want to round the number 5.2 to the nearest odd integer, you would enter the formula ODD(5.2) and the result would be 5.
• If you want to round the number -3.7 to the nearest odd integer, you would enter the formula ODD(-3.7) and the result would be -5.
Are there any limitations to the ODD function?
The ODD function only works with integers. It will not work with decimal numbers.
