• 2. How do I round decimals???
• Rounding decimals
• Very similar to rounding whole numbers – the only difference is that there is a decimal point!
• Look at the digit to the right of where you are rounding
• If the digit is 4 or less, round down
• If the digit is 5 or more, round up
• 3. Rounding Decimals
• Round to the nearest hundredth
• 6.2 7 8
• The number to the right of the 7 is an 8
• 8 is greater than five so I need to round up!
• The 2 becomes a 3 and everything else becomes a 0
• 6.278 rounded to the nearest hundredth equals 6.300
• 4. More on Rounding Decimals
• Round to the nearest tenth
• 4. 0 82
• The number to the right of 0 is 8
• 8 is greater than 0, which means that I need to round the 0 up to a 1
• All numbers after the 1 will become a 0
• The answer is 4.100
