If the digit to the right of your rounding digit is less than

**5**(0 through 4),**round down**(drop all digits to the right of the digit**you**are rounding, replacing them with zeros). Examples: Rounding 361 to the nearest ten: The digit in the tens place is 6, so**we**look at the digit to the right of it (1).Consequently, how do you round to the nearest hundred?

To

**round**to the**nearest**cent,**nearest**penny, or**nearest hundredth**, you will need to locate the hundredths place. Then look at the digit to the right. If it is 5 or above, the number in the hundredths place will be increased by 1 and all the rest of the numbers after it are dropped.What is 0.086 rounded to the nearest hundredth?

**Rounding to the Nearest Hundredth**.

**Rounding**decimals is very similar to

**rounding**other numbers. If the thousandths place of a decimal is four or less, it is dropped and the

**hundredths**place does not change. For example,

**rounding**0.843 to the

**nearest hundredth**would give 0.84.

How many numbers less than 1000 would round to 1000 when rounded to the nearest hundred?

The largest number that is at least 1000 with a "4" in the tens place is 1049, so any number between 1000 and 1049 will round down to 1000. Notice again that we have

**50 numbers**. So we have 50 + 50=**100 numbers**which round to 1000 to the nearest hundreds.
