What is 23.971 rounding the tenths?

To round the tenths you look at the hundredth column, which in this case is a 7. Since 7 is greater than 5 we round up, but since 9 can't round up anymore we have to round the ones column. Thus rounding 23.971 by the tenths = 24.0 (The zero is necessary to show that you've rounded the number by the tenths and not the ones.)
