Example

656 rounded to the nearest ten is __660__

Question 1.

9,709 rounded to the nearest hundred is ____

Answer: 9,700

Rounding is a way of simplifying numbers to make them easier to understand or work with. Rounding can be used when an exact number isn’t needed, and an approximate answer will do.

When rounding a number such as 9709 to the nearest hundred, we use the following rules:

A) We round the number up to the nearest hundred if the last two digits in the number are 50 or above.

B) We round the number down to the nearest hundred if the last two digits in the number are 49 or below.

C) If the last two digits are 00, then we do not have to do any rounding, because it is already to the hundred.

In this case, Rule B applies and 9709 rounded to the nearest hundred is: 9,700

9,709 rounded to the nearest hundred is 9,700.

Question 2.

31,600 rounded to the nearest thousand is ___

Answer: 32,000

Rounding off the numbers means shortening the length of the number from long digits by replacing it with the nearest value. Round of to the nearest 1000 means minimizing the given decimal number to its nearest 1000 value.

How to round off the numbers to the nearest 1000:

Based on the below steps, we can easily round the numbers to the nearest 1000.

1. First, Find out the thousand’s digit in the number.

2. Next, choose the next smallest number (that is the hundredth digit of the number).

3. Now, check the hundred’s digit is either <5 (That means 0, 1, 2, 3, 4) or > = 5 (That is 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).

(i) If the digit is < 5, then the hundreds place is replaced with the digit ‘0’.

(ii) If the digit is > = 5, then the hundred’s digit is replaced with the digit ‘0’, and the thousand’s place digit is increased by 1 digit.

Number 31,600 Round to the Nearest 1000

Step 1: Thousand’s digit of the number is 1.

Step 2: Hundred’s digit of the number is 0.

Step 3: The hundred’s digit ‘0’ is <5, then we have to apply 3(i) conditions. That is, the hundred’s placed is replaced with the digit ‘0’.

31,600 rounding of the nearest 1000 is equal to 32,000.

**Round each number to the nearest thousand.**

Question 3.

5,637 ____

Answer: 6000

Explanation:

Rounding off the numbers means shortening the length of the number from long digits by replacing it with the nearest value. Round of to the nearest 1000 means minimizing the given decimal number to its nearest 1000 value.

How to round off the numbers to the nearest 1000:

Step 4: The hundred’s digit ‘3’ is <5, then we have to apply some conditions. That is, the hundred’s placed is replaced with the digit ‘0’.

7,802 rounding of the nearest 1000 is equal to 8000.

4,396 rounding of the nearest 1000 is equal to 4000.

The front end estimations are 8000, 4000.

Now subtract all those estimations:8000-4000=4000.

**Use front-end estimation with adjustment to estimate each difference.**

Example

7,594 – 2,831

7,000 – 2,000 = 5,000

800 – 500 = 300

To the nearest thouari:

300 → 0

5,000 – 0 = 5,000

Question 28.

5,780 – 3,962

Answer: 2000

Explanation:

With front end estimation, we only round and subtract the numbers in the leftmost place or the very last number on the left. This means that all numbers in other places will be zeros except the number in the leftmost place after the numbers are rounded. Having said that, if the numbers have two digits, round to the tens place before adding the leftmost digits or numbers.

Number 5,780 and 3,962 Round to the Nearest 1000:

Step 1: Thousand’s digit of the number is 5 and 3.

Step 2: Hundred’s digit of the number is 7 and 9.

Step 3: The hundred’s digit ‘7 and 9’ is >=5, then we have to apply some conditions. That is, the hundred’s placed is replaced with the digit ‘0’ and the thousand’s place digit is increased by 1 digit.

5,780 rounding of the nearest 1000 is equal to 6000.

3,962 rounding of the nearest 1000 is equal to 4000.

The front end estimations are 6000, 4000.

Now subtract all those estimations:6000-4000=2000.

Question 29.
