How to Keep Trailing Zeros After Rounding in R (Example Code)

In this post you’ll learn how to retain zeros at the end of a number after rounding in R programming.

Introducing Example Data

my_data <- 5.55                       # Example data
# [1] 5.55
round(my_data, 5)                     # Rounding removes zeros
# [1] 5.55
