The number 47 does not have a digit in the hundreds place. It only has digits

in the ones and tens places. The four is in the tens place and the seven is in

the ones place. Therefore it cannot be rounded to the nearest hundreds place.

The number 47 is between zero hundred and one hundred. It is nearer to zero

hundred than it is to one hundred. When rounded to the nearest hundred, it

becomes zero, since zero hundred is nearer to it than one hundred is.
