I'm trying to get a SharePoint formula to show a percentage of time remaining on a contract. I'm nearly there but it's showing a lot of numbers to the right of the decimal point. I've tried a few things, rounding up, min, max but nothing seems to get rid of those pesky numbers. Any ideas? I'm using SP Online and this is my formula:

 =MAX(0,TodayDate-[Contract Commencement Date])/([Contract End Date]-[Contract Commencement Date])

Try to use Round function to rounds a number to a specified number of digits.

Round Syntax = ROUND(number,num_digits)

Where the num_digits the number of digits to which you want to round the number.

In your case, try the following:

=ROUND(MAX(0,TodayDate-[Contract Commencement Date])/([Contract End Date]-[Contract Commencement Date]), 1)
