00:00:00.680 --> 00:00:09.000
Round 5836197 to the nearest hundred.
00:00:10.160 --> 00:00:16.000
To round this number to the nearest hundred, we’ll first need to identify which digit is in the hundreds place.
00:00:17.160 --> 00:00:18.920
Let’s label our values.
00:00:19.400 --> 00:00:25.880
Working from right to left, we start with our units, followed by the tens place, and then the hundreds place.
00:00:26.720 --> 00:00:28.920
This one is the rounding digit.
00:00:29.720 --> 00:00:37.760
Even though the one is our rounding digit, we’ll need to look to the right of the one to find out how we will round this problem.
00:00:38.640 --> 00:00:39.880
We have two cases.
00:00:40.320 --> 00:00:46.280
If the digit to the right-hand side of our rounding number is four or smaller, then our rounding digit will stay the same.
00:00:46.840 --> 00:00:55.240
If the digit to the right-hand side of your rounding digit is five or larger, then our rounding digit will go up by one.
00:00:56.280 --> 00:01:02.840
For us, the digit to the right-hand side of the number we’re rounding is larger than five, because it’s nine.
00:01:03.520 --> 00:01:08.000
By following the procedure, this means that we’ll have to round our one up.
00:01:08.760 --> 00:01:10.440
Our one becomes a two.
00:01:11.080 --> 00:01:15.080
Everything to the right of your rounding digit turns into a zero.
00:01:15.800 --> 00:01:19.640
And everything to the left of your rounding digit stays the same.
00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:37.080
5836197, rounded to the nearest hundred, is 5836200.
