How do you round to the nearest hundredth?
Remember that the hundredths place is two moves from the right of the decimal point. To round to the nearest hundredth, we use the thousandths place to determine whether the hundredths place rounds up or stays the same. If it is 5 or above, we give it a shove. If it is 4 or below, we let it go.
To do this, you look at the tenths place (the first one behind the decimal point) and if it is 1–4, round down and keep the ones place the same (If this was the case your answer would be 1665 feet). If the tenths place is 5–9, you round up, increasing the ones place by 1 and therefore making your answer 1,666 feet.
- Answered Sep 3, 2015. It's just like normal rounding. 'Square inches' are just a unit of measure; in the problem, when you're told to round 'to the nearest square inch', you're really being told to round to the nearest whole number, as long as your measure of area is expressed in square inches.
- A cubic centimetre (or cubic centimeter in US English) (SI unit symbol: cm3; non-SI abbreviations: cc and ccm) is a commonly used unit of volume that extends the derived SI-unit cubic metre, and corresponds to the volume of a cube that measures 1 cm × 1 cm × 1 cm.
- In other words, one milliliter (1 ml) is equal to one cubic centimeter (1 cc). It may be called a “0.3 ml” syringe or “0.3 cc” syringe. It is also known as an insulin syringe. Although it is labeled in “units” at the bottom of the syringe, each unit actually is one-hundredth of a milliliter (0.01 ml or 0.01 cc).
