    round up

    can I use " to round up" meaning " to conclude" ?

    let me round up my talk / words; no one can predict these problems without . . .

    I would like to round up all the facts I've explained . . .

    as a round-up, let me itemize the reasons for this kind of problem . . .

    Re: round up

    I would say no. You can't say conclude all the facts, either.

    Be aware of the differences in use between round up, round off, sum up and conclude.
