You look at the number of casualties, not the number left. 3 casualties is less than half of 7 so does not meet the criteria of “half or more” to trigger the test. 4 is more than half so meets the criteria. There is no rounding involved or necessary, you don’t have fractional casualties.

Point to note – the number required is based on the number in the squad when the current shooting unit opened fire. If the squad mentioned takes 3 casualties it avoids having to test this time but it only has 4 men left. The next unit shooting at them only has to cause 2 casualties to trigger a test, not half or more of the original strength.
