I have come across with questions that ask to round to the nearest dollar but in given cases there is additional information in the questions that suggest to round down.
For example if a question asks to calculate cost per sqft based on a given budget, but that you have to stay within budget. Let’s say you have a construction budget of $725,000 and a 10,000sqft facility. Your construction cost would be $72.50 per sqft so if you round to $73.00 you would be over budget by $5,000. So far I have noticed that in similar questions the answer always rounds up. Should we asume that when a question specifically asks to round to the nearest dollar we would need to round-up?
