to round mixed numbers to the nearest half...........

1st you just leave the whole number alone. then on the fraction you decide if it rounds to 0 1/2 or 1 then what ever answer you get you put it with the whole number.

Example: 3 5/8

5/8= 1/2 because 4 is half of 8 and 5 is the closest you can get to 8

so then you take that 1/2 and put it with the 3. so then your answer will be

3 1/2

Hope this helps!! :)

When rounding to the nearest thousand, half round up and half round down.Half of 1000 is 500 → numbers that are 8000 ± 500, that is 7500 to 8500 will round to 8000 to the nearest 1000.However, numbers half way by convention round up and 8500 is half way between 8000 & 9000 and so would round up to 9000.Thus numbers greater than or equal to 7500 and less than 8500 will round to 8000 to the nearest 1000.Therefore the largest whole number that will round to 8000 to the nearest 1000 is 8499.

Half of 1000 is 500, so numbers in the range 5000 ± 500 round to 5000 to the nearest 1000 EXCEPT that numbers exactly half way round up. ie numbers greater than or equal to 5000 - 500 = 4500 and less than 5000 + 500 = 5500 will round to 5000 to the nearest 1000. So the largest whole number that rounds to 5000 to the nearest 1000 is 5500 - 1 = 5499.

When rounding to the nearest thousand (1000), half the numbers (1000 ÷ 2 = 500) round up, and the other half round down - except for those which are exactly half-way: they round up. Thus the largest number that will round to 27,000 to the nearest thousand must round down to it and is 27,000 + 500 - 1 = 27,499.

Yes, if you are rounding to the nearest half. No, if you aren't.

It depends on what you are rounding to: the nearest half, nearest thousand or whatever.

It depends on the degree of rounding: To the nearest integer: 299.5 To the nearest ten: 295 To the nearest 30: 285 To the nearest hundred: 250 Essentially, it is 300 minus one half of the unit that you are rounding to.

If you are rounding to the nearest one, 2/3 rounds to 1. If you are rounding to the nearest half, 2/3 rounds to 1/2 4/6 is closer to 3/6 than it is to 6/6

Some people find it easier to add or subtract whole numbers but yes, you could round to the nearest half.

Yes, of course, you lose more precision if you round to a half inch. Try rounding 0.76 to the nearest half unit, and to the nearest quarter unit, and see what happens.

When rounding to the nearest thousand, half round up and half round down.Half of 1000 is 500 → numbers that are 8000 ± 500, that is 7500 to 8500 will round to 8000 to the nearest 1000.However, numbers half way by convention round up and 8500 is half way between 8000 & 9000 and so would round up to 9000.Thus numbers greater than or equal to 7500 and less than 8500 will round to 8000 to the nearest 1000.Therefore the largest whole number that will round to 8000 to the nearest 1000 is 8499.

Half of 1000 is 500, so numbers in the range 5000 ± 500 round to 5000 to the nearest 1000 EXCEPT that numbers exactly half way round up. ie numbers greater than or equal to 5000 - 500 = 4500 and less than 5000 + 500 = 5500 will round to 5000 to the nearest 1000. So the largest whole number that rounds to 5000 to the nearest 1000 is 5500 - 1 = 5499.

When rounding to the nearest whatever, half the number round up and half round down. → the numbers that round to 170000 to the nearest 10000 are 170000 ± (10000 ÷ 2) = 170000 ± 5000 However, if a number is exactly half way, the convention is to round them up, so the numbers in the range: 170000 - 5000 ≤ number < 170000 + 5000 → 165000 ≤ number < 175000 will round to 170000 to the nearest 10000 → smallest number is 165000 → biggest [whole] number is 175000 - 1 = 174999
