Best Answer

The nearest cent is two decimal places.

To round a number to a particular digit, look at the digit immediately to the right of your target, in this case, the third decimal place. If that digit is 4 or lower, zero it and everything to the right of it out. If that digit is 5 or higher, increase the target digit by one and zero everything to the right of it out. If your target digit is a 9, increasing it will turn it to zero and increase the digit to the left of it by one.

What is 386.75 rounded to nearest cent?

You have asked to round the number to the nearest cent, but you have not said what the units are which that number represents.
