    Applications of Truncation and Rounding

    I understand what truncation is and I also know what rounding is, but finding applications for both in middle school math is stumbling me. Can anyone give me some clues/help?

    one application is in web programming
    like pagination in this forum.

    i have used it in PHP to paginate the result from database when number of records were more than 10 in the table!

    application is wide and is every where.

    check this link for PHP functions related to it:
