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.
