Therefore, 0.4975 rounded to the nearest hundredth is 0.50. You owe the
.50 for the candy.
The previous example showed a problem that required rounding to the
nearest hundredth. Other problems may involve rounding to the nearest
tenth, to the nearest thousandth, to the nearest millionth, to the nearest
whole number, to the nearest thousand, to the nearest billion, etc.
As long as you are dealing with whole numbers and/or decimals, you can
use some basic steps to determine how to round a given number. These
steps are givenin the next frame.
Remember, you will be rounding to the nearest number. The theory is
that if several numbers are rounded, some will go to the higher number
(round up) while others will go to the lower number (round down). If all of
the original (unrounded) numbers were added together and rounded, the
results should be about the same as the sum of the rounded numbers.
