00:00:01.230 --> 00:00:06.470
Round 48.74 to the nearest whole number.
00:00:08.170 --> 00:00:13.960
The nearest whole number means we’ll be rounding to the nearest units place.
00:00:15.460 --> 00:00:19.800
The units place is the first digit to the left of the decimal.
00:00:20.930 --> 00:00:27.550
In order to round to the nearest unit, we will consider the tenths place.
00:00:27.890 --> 00:00:32.110
We will consider the digit to the right of the units place.
00:00:33.390 --> 00:00:40.620
If this value in the tenths place is greater than or equal to five, then we round up.
00:00:41.570 --> 00:00:48.870
If the digit in the tenths place is less than or equal to four, then we round down.
00:00:50.530 --> 00:00:55.210
Seven is greater than five, so we should round up.
00:00:56.250 --> 00:01:01.860
We take the eight in the units place and round it up by one digit to a nine.
00:01:02.690 --> 00:01:05.800
Our four in the tens place doesn’t change.
00:01:06.820 --> 00:01:10.110
And everything after the decimal becomes a zero.
00:01:11.520 --> 00:01:17.090
We’re only interested in the whole number, so we don’t need the decimal zero zero at the end.
00:01:18.490 --> 00:01:25.260
48.74 rounded to the nearest whole number is 49.
