what causes truncation?
to limit the number of digits after the decimal point in computer science and mathematics. This is done by discarding the least significant ones.
Example: Consider real numbers in mathematics like:
now if you want to truncate these numbers to say 2 decimal digits, we consider the 2 digits to the right of the decimal point resulting in:
Truncation is not the same as rounding, but truncation does not round up nor down the digits; it just merely cuts off at the specified digit like that example.
