# Python: Configure the rounding to round to the nearest - with ties going towards 0, with ties going away from 0

## Python module: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to configure the rounding to round to the nearest - with ties going towards 0, with ties going away from 0. Use decimal.ROUND_HALF_DOWN, decimal.ROUND_HALF_UP

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
import decimal
print("Configure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going towards 0:")
decimal.getcontext().prec = 1
decimal.getcontext().rounding = decimal.ROUND_HALF_DOWN
print(decimal.Decimal(10) / decimal.Decimal(4))
print("\nConfigure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going away from 0:")
decimal.getcontext().prec = 1
decimal.getcontext().rounding = decimal.ROUND_HALF_UP
print(decimal.Decimal(10) / decimal.Decimal(4))
```

Sample Output:

Configure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going towards 0: 2 Configure the rounding to round to the nearest, with ties going away from 0: 3

**For-else construct useful when searched for something and find it:**

# For example assume that I need to search through a list and process each item until a flag item is found and # then stop processing. If the flag item is missing then an exception needs to be raised. for i in mylist: if i == theflag: break process(i) else: raise ValueError("List argument missing terminal flag.")
