rounding a double value

I have a double value (1.63722333) and I need to round it to the nearest tenth so I get 1.64. How can I do this?

Just to clarify, Math.round() will always round to the nearest whole number. The reason Kundret's code rounds to the nearest hundredth is because we FIRST multiply it by 100, then, after rounding it, divide by 100 again. This way, you can round to any place, as long as you move the decimal point (by multiplying/dividing) before and after the rounding.

Another alternate to round a double value, make a java.text.DecimalFormat like:
static DecimalFormat df=new DecimalFormat("0.00");
and it does the rounding.
