# Python: Round a Decimal value to the nearest multiple of 0.10, unless already an exact multiple of 0.05

## Python module: Exercise-3 with Solution

Write a Python program to round a decimal value to the nearest multiple of 0.10, unless already an exact multiple of 0.05. Use decimal.Decimal

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````from decimal import Decimal
#Source: https://bit.ly/3hEyyY4

def round_to_10_cents(x):
remainder = x.remainder_near(Decimal('0.10'))
if abs(remainder) == Decimal('0.05'):
return x
else:
return x - remainder

# Test code.
for x in range(80, 120):
y = Decimal(x) / Decimal('1E2')
print("{0} rounds to {1}".format(y, round_to_10_cents(y)))
```
```

```0.80 rounds to 0.80
