It is replacing the number by the whole number such that the difference between the number and that whole number is the smallest that it can be.
rounding numbers is to nearest ten or hundred and compatible numbers are when you can do nearest 5
The answer depends on whether the rounding is to the nearest hundreds, the nearest tens or nearest unit!
The answer depends on the degree of rounding. To the nearest million, any number between 500000 and 1500000. [the number could be 1499999.997, so the upper limit is NOT 1499999] To the nearest hundred thousand, any number between 950000 and 1050000 To the nearest ten thousand, any number between 995000 and 1005000 ... To the nearest unit, any number between 999995 and 1000005 To the nearest tenth, any number between 999999.5 and 1000000.5 To the nearest hundredth, any number between 999999.95 and 1000000.05 etc.
The difference between the greatest and least number is the range.
Find a fourth that is just less than (or equal to) the number and the next fourth.Calculate the difference between the number and the two fourths and select the one that gives the smaller difference.Alternatively,Multiply the given number by 4.Round it to the nearest whole number.Divide this nearest whole number by 4.
the difference between ine number and the next on the scale ?
the difference between a number and 3 is
0.06 lies between the whole numbers 0 and 1. Difference between 0 and 0.06 is 0.06. Difference between 1 and 0.06 is 0.94 So, 0 is much closer to 0.06 and therefore 0.06 rounded to the nearest whole number is 0.
