I thought you meant 'round up' when you used the bar over the 9.

Anyway, according to google, there is a symbol for 'round down' and 'round up':

Usually, in mathematical notation we express rounding down with the floor function so ⌊ a ⌋ is the largest integer less than or equal to a. Similarly, for rounding up, we use the ceiling function, so ⌈ a ⌉ is the smallest integer greater than or equal to a.
