BASIC RULES
1. If the number to the RIGHT of the Rounding Number is 5 or
more (5, 6, 7 8 or 9) then the LEFT (Rounding Number) number
goes UP by ONE place.
2. If the number to the RIGHT of the Rounding Number is 4 or less
(4, 3, 2, 1 or 0) then the LEFT (Rounding Number) number
remains the SAME.
3. Every number AFTER the Rounding Number becomes 0.
4. Everything BEFORE the Rounding Number remains the same.
5. If the Rounding Number is a 9 and it goes up by one, then a 0 is
placed in the Rounding Number Place and 1 is moved to the next
place to the LEFT. (same as carrying in adding)
How to Round Whole Numbers to the Tens Place
Example: Round 78 to the nearest tens place
| | | | | | | | | |
78 80
70
1. Underline the place you want to round to.
Here we want the tens place
78
How to Round Whole Numbers to the Tens Place
Example: Round 78 to the nearest tens place
2. Look to the right of the place you want to round to,
Look
here
Now look to the right of the
78
tens place
- If the digit is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 – the digit in the tens place
goes UP by 1
- If the digit is 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 – the digit in the tens place
STAYS THE SAME
The 7 in the tens place
goes up by 1 to 8
78
80
How to Round Whole Numbers to the Tens Place
Example: Round 78 to the nearest tens place
3. Next, the digits to the right of the rounding place become
zero.
Now the 8 becomes zero
78 becomes
80
4. Anything to the left of the rounding place remains the
same.
So 78 rounded to the nearest tens place is 80
How to Round Whole Numbers to the Tens Place
Example: Round 123 to the nearest tens place
| | | | | | | | | |
130
120
123
To Round:
Look to the right
On the left
123
Here is the tens place
3, so the 2 in the tens
place stays the same.
On the left hand side, all
stays the same
 123 rounds to 120
How to Round Whole Numbers to the Tens Place
Example: Round 1 099 to the nearest tens place
| | | | | | | | | |
1090
1099 1100
To Round:
1099 Here is the tens place with 9 to its right
The 9 in the tens place goes up by one.
**But, 9 goes to 10 and we only have one place
1100 So we need to move over one more place to the
left adding 1 to the hundreds place and 0 to the
tens place. All on right changes to zero.
 1 099 rounds to 1 100

- If the digit is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 – the digit in the hundreds
place goes UP by 1
- If the digit is 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 – the digit in the hundreds
place STAYS THE SAME
The 1 in the hundreds place
stays the same
145

Now the 4 and 5 becomes zero
145 becomes
100
4. Anything to the left of the rounding place remains the
same.
So 145 rounded to the nearest hundreds place is 100

How to Round Whole Numbers to the
Thousands Place
Example: Round 9 871 to the nearest thousands place
| | | | | | | | | | |
9000
9 871 10 000
1. Underline the place you want to round to.
Here we want the thousands
9 871
How to Round Whole Numbers to the
Thousands Place
Example: Round 9 871 to the nearest thousands place
2. Look to the right of the place you want to round to,
Now look to the right of the
thousands place
9 871
- If the digit is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 – the digit in the thousands
place goes UP by 1
- If the digit is 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 – the digit in the thousands
place STAYS THE SAME
The 9 in the thousands place
goes up by 1
9 871
10 000
How to Round Whole Numbers to the
Thousands Place
Example: Round 9 871 to the nearest thousands place
3. Next, the digits to the right of the rounding place become
zero.
Now the 8,7 and 1 becomes zero 9 871 becomes 10 000
4. Anything to the left of the rounding place remains the
same.
So 9 871 rounded to the nearest thousand place is 10 000
