Best Answer

To round to the nearest hundred, you must look at the number that is to the right of the hundreds place. If the number is 5 or higher, then you round up to the next highest number. If the number is 4 or lower, then you must round down. For example, if you had the number 560, you would round that up because the number to the right of the hundreds place is 6. 560 rounded to the nearest hundred is 600. Another example is 420. You would round 420 down because the number that is the right of the hundreds place is 2. 420 rounded to the nearest hundred is 400.
