Say I have the value 2.3638383 in a cell in Numbers for iOS (iPhone). Can I format the numbers so only 2 decimal places are shown (rounded to nearest decimal)? So 2.3638383 would be displayed as 2.36?

Yes - it's a built in formatting command so you don't have too mess with formulas like FLOOR or ROUND.

enter image description here

Here are the steps:

1) Select the cell containing the number
2) Select the paint brush from top bar (4th from right)
3) Then select Format Tab (rightmost)
4) From dropdown select Number
5) Tap the i to the right of Number
6) From Number tab and under Decimals select 2 from dropdown
