00:00:00.600 --> 00:00:07.160
Round five thousand six hundred twenty-nine and three-tenths to the nearest hundred.
00:00:07.920 --> 00:00:16.720
We want to take our number five thousand six hundred twenty-nine and three-tenths and round it to the nearest hundred.
00:00:17.840 --> 00:00:20.240
There is currently a six in the hundreds place.
00:00:21.120 --> 00:00:28.160
In order to round to the nearest hundred, we’ll need to look at the digit to the right of the hundred.
00:00:28.160 --> 00:00:31.360
We’ll need to look at the tens place.
00:00:32.360 --> 00:00:40.400
If the digit in the tens place is greater than or equal to five, then we round up.
00:00:41.800 --> 00:00:49.280
If the digit in the tens place is less than or equal to four, then we round down.
00:00:50.360 --> 00:00:53.840
In this case, there is a two in the tens place.
00:00:54.560 --> 00:00:59.600
Two is less than four, so we need to round down.
00:01:00.720 --> 00:01:10.520
When you round down, the digit you were rounding, in our case the six in the hundreds place, stays the same.
00:01:10.520 --> 00:01:13.440
Our six stays the same.
00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:18.200
The five in the thousands place also stays the same.
00:01:18.760 --> 00:01:23.160
And every digit to the right of the hundreds place becomes a zero.
00:01:24.080 --> 00:01:29.600
When we’re rounding to the nearest hundreds place, we don’t need a decimal.
00:01:29.600 --> 00:01:42.160
We can say five thousand six hundred twenty-nine and three-tenths rounded to the nearest hundred equals 5600.
