Rounding Values in WebAssign
Some textbooks specify different rules for rounding. Regardless of the rules used in a given textbook, when numeric values are rounded in WebAssign, they are always rounded away from zero if the rounding digit is 5.
This rounding rule is sometimes called "rounding up" but "away from zero" better describes the rule for negative values.
