Vb.net Question

I must be missing some subtlety of .NET rounding. So I am looking at this example:

`decimal num = 2.5M;`

var result = Math.Round(num);

Why is

`result = 2`

Answer

If you want classic rounding use

```
decimal num = 2.5M;
var result = Math.Round(num,0, MidpointRounding.AwayFromZero);
```
