00:00:01.070 --> 00:00:06.740
Round 241639 to the nearest thousand.
00:00:08.450 --> 00:00:13.920
The first thing we need to do is recognize which digit is in the thousands place.
00:00:14.880 --> 00:00:19.960
The thousands place is four places after the decimal.
00:00:20.940 --> 00:00:24.280
And in this value, there’s a one in the thousands place.
00:00:25.160 --> 00:00:32.710
To round to the thousands place, we look to the digit one place to the right, in the hundreds place.
00:00:33.990 --> 00:00:36.180
There’s a six in the hundreds place.
00:00:36.530 --> 00:00:40.850
Because six is greater than five, we’ll round up.
00:00:41.440 --> 00:00:44.930
The one in the thousands place will become a two.
00:00:45.570 --> 00:00:50.190
Everything to the left of the thousands place stays the same.
00:00:50.760 --> 00:00:54.690
Everything to the right of the thousands place becomes a zero.
00:00:56.200 --> 00:01:05.020
241639 rounded to the nearest thousand equals 242000.
