As a general rule, numbers that are halfway round up.

the larger multiple

the higher multiple of ten

Usually the higher hundred.

If you are halfway, the general rule is to round up.

You Round up to the next higher number

Round up.

There are different schools of thought here. Some say to round to the nearest even number, in which case it would be 1460. Some say to always round up when it is halfway between, in which case it would be 1460. If it is OK to always round up when it is halfway between, then it makes just as much sense to round down when it is halfway between, in which case it would be 1450. Some say that the only fair way is to use some sort of random number generator to say which way to round. For example, you could roll a die and round to the even number if you roll an even number, and round to the odd number if you roll an odd number. In which case, it could be either 1460 or 1450 depending upon the die roll. Or you could put both numbers into a hat and randomly pick one.

since it is over the halfway point between 6 and 7, the nearest whole number would be 7

463 rounded to the nearest hundred would be 500. Normally if a number is past the halfway mark between hundreds (in this case, if it's past 450) you round up. If not, you round down. If your number is exactly at the halfway mark (i.e. 450 exactly) you normally still round up.

I assume in your question you are asking what happens when a number is in between two whole numbers. E.G 4 and 5 the middle is 4.5 If you wanted to round this up to 1 significant figure or an integer/whole number the rule is that if in the middle you always round up to the highest number. In the case of the example the answer would be 5 if you were to round it up.

You "round" numbers by deciding if the number is closer to the lower number or to the higher one. Logically, the halfway point would be the point that decides which is which. This means that 75500.5 would be the halfway point between 75500 and 75501. So the greatest possible number that you would round DOWN to 75500 would be 75500.4

We realize that 549 rounds down to 500, so 550 must be the smallest whole number that rounds to 600. --------------------------------------------------------------------- When rounding to the nearest whatever, half of the numbers between two multiples of the whatever round down and half round up. BY convention any number exactly halfway between two multiples rounds up. Half of 100 = ½ × 100 = 50 Therefore the numbers 600 ± 50 will round to 600. This will be inclusive of 600 - 50 = 550 but exclusive of 600 + 50 = 650 (as 600 + 50 = 650 is exactly halfway between 600 + 50 and 700 - 50, and so would round up to 700). Ie all the numbers greater than or equal to 550 and less than 650 will round to 600 to the nearest 100. Mathematically this is written as all numbers x such that 550 ≤ x < 650 will round to 600 when rounded to the nearest 100. Therefore 550 is the smallest number that will round [up] to 600 to the nearest 100.

If a coordinate is half way between a number, eg (2.3,74) then you round to the nearest whole number so it would be (2, 74) (round 2.5 to 3 not to 2, round 2.1 to 2 not 3 and round 2.7 to 3, this is because the number after the decimal place is either closer to one or the other)

It could be 344.75 if you round up, or 344.74 if you round down. Either answer is correct, unless your teacher has given you specific instructions on how to round when the number is exactly halfway between the two hundredths.

Round about Norman, Oklahoma.

the higher multiple

Round it to the next whole number,so say if you have 7.8 you would round it 8 because you round up if its over half way. if you had 7.4 you would round it to 7 because its less than halfway.

Round Knob, Pennsylvania is located halfway between Asheville, North Carolina and Burlington, Vermont. There is approximately 963 miles between Asheville and Burlington.

(29 + 34)/2 = 31.5 Rounded, it's 32. When rounding a number with exactly .5 or 1/2 as the fractional part, the standard practice is to round to the closest even number.

Possibly you mean The Equator, which is the imaginary line which runs round the Earth halfway between the poles.

Round Grove, IN. You might as well go on to Lafayette.

If you were asked to round to the nearest 100, any number between 50 and 99 inclusive would round to 100. Also any number between 101 an 149 inclusive would round to 100.

6.5 is halfway between 6 and 7. In the the most widely used system of rounding, it would round up to 7, but it is no closer to 7 than to 6.

Half of 6 is 3. Half of 8 is 4. 7 is not an even number, so half of 7 will not be a round number. Half of 7 is halfway between half of 6 and 8-halfway between 3 and 4. So half of 7 is 3.5 Additionally, you could multiply 7 by .5 to divide it in half. Your answer will be 3.5, for the reason explained above.
