You take the number to the right of the tenths place (9). Then, you round the number in the tenths place depending on the number in the hundredths place (<5- stay the same, >4-round up). The answer would be 4.3.

the tenth place is in between the ones & hundred's place, so you take the ones & find out if it is greater or less than 5. (0--> 4 stay the same, 5--> 9 move up 1 digit) after that you can round. in the number 412.25 the ones digit is 2, so we keep the 1 in the tenths digit the same & change all the digits to the right into 0's, so 412.25 rounded to the "nearest tenth" is 410.00.

You round 56.52173913 to the nearest hundredth by looking behind the decimal. The first digit behind the decimal is in the tenths place. The second digit is in the hundredths place and the thousandths, and so on. The 2 is in the hundredths place so you would look at the number to the right. The number to the right is 1. If it is 0-4 then the 2 stays the same, if it is 5 or more then you change the 2 to a 3. So it would stay the same.

The hundredth place is the second place from the zero because 100 has two zeroes. Therefore, you look at the very next number after that second one and see if it is over 5. If it is over 5 you round up; if it is under 5 you stay the same. You have 85.182 so the third number is a 2. That is under 5 so you keep the second number the same and just drop the 2.

No, when rounding, numbers that are less than 5 stay the same. So, if the number 4 is rounded, it remains as 4.

it's 16.5 and if you cant round to a place EX: round 4.72 to the nearest tenth since the two is below 5 or up you stay so 5 or more round up 4 or below stay the same hope this helped

the decimal number is above 5 as it is 5 and this means you round up, however if the decimal number is below 5, then you stay the same or in some cases round down.

You take the number to the right of the tenths place (9). Then, you round the number in the tenths place depending on the number in the hundredths place (<5- stay the same, >4-round up). The answer would be 4.3.

42.5 because the 2 in the hundredths place is lower than 5, so the the numbers before stay the same.

Think it's 11. If u can't remember how, here's a stupid song I heard in 3rd grade: "Rounding numbers can B fun, if u do them one by one, 0 1 2 3 and 4 stay same, stay same, 5 6 7 8 and 9 round up, round up." I know it's pretty dumb, but with 11.83333, since the 8 is behind the 11 and it's 5 or higher than 5 (+5), than you round up and the whole integer, or number, is 11. Hope I sorta helped!

Rounding is always the same, if your rounding. Less than 5 round down, more than or equal to 5, round up.

If it is 5 or more, round up, if it is 4 or less keep it the same

5 or more you always round up. In this case .5 answer 66.70 or 66.7 (= same thing)

yes normally. As I learned it, 0 to 4, stay on the floor, 5 to 9, climb the vine. hope it helped.!:)
