    Your logic is correct. But in my experience, you will not encounter calculations on the ARE where this even becomes an issue.

    I agree.  You typically work the #s in your calculator, don't clear the #s, do multiple operations, and round off the answer after the final math operation.

    Rounding to the nearest cent would be unusual for construction.  Rounded to the nearest dollar is much more likely for the ARE.

    Hope this helps!
