# Do you round up or down for 5?

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.
