Y = round(X,N) where N is the number of digits to the right (when positive) or left (negative).
y = round(X*10)/10;

So i have two values
A = 1.69 and B = 1.8
A = 2.1 and B = 2.4
How do i show it that they are approximately equal without using round
are there any relational operators that i can use?
