## Excel EVEN Function

The EVEN function rounds numbers away from zero to the nearest even integer. Therefore, it rounds a positive number up and a negative number down.

=EVEN (number)

#### Arguments

• Number (required): The value to round up or down to an even integer.

#### Return value

The EVEN function returns a numeric value.

#### Function notes

1. Number, the only argument in the EVEN function, should be supplied as a numeric value.
2. EVEN function will return the #VALUE! error if number is nonnumeric.
3. When number is an even integer, the function returns the same value as supplied. No rounding occurs.
4. Zero (0) is also an even integer. The returned result will still be zero (0) if number = 0.

#### Examples

Supposing, you want to round the numbers to even integers in the table below. Please do as follows.

1. Copy the formula below into cell C4.

=EVEN (B4)

2. Then drag the fill handle down to the cells you want to apply this formula too. The results are as the following screenshot shows.

Notes:

1. As we can see in the example above, when numbers are the even integers like -2, 0, 2, and 8, no rounding occurs.
2. We can directly input value in the number argument in the formula. For example, the formula in cell C4 can be changed to:

=EVEN (-5)
