We have to round the number down. If the last digit in the number is 1, 2, 3, or 4.

Question 8.

23.84 to 1 decimal place.

Answer:

23.84 is rounded to 1 decimal place is **23.8**.

If the last digit in 23.84 is less than 5, then remove the last digit.

If the last digit in 23.84 is 5 or more and the second to the last digit in 23.84 is less than 9, then remove the last digit and add 1 to the second to the last digit.

If the last digit in 23.84 is 5 or more and the second to the last digit in 23.84 is 9, then remove the last digit, make the second to last digit 0, and add 1 to the number to the left of the decimal place.

The last digit in 23.84 is less than 5, So we have to remove the last digit. 23.84 is rounded to 23.8.

Question 9.

306.128 to the nearest hundredth.

Answer:

306.128 is rounded to the nearest hundredth is **306.13**.

Explanation:

The third digit of 306.128 right of decimal point is 8. Add 1 to the before decimal number then the number is **306.13**.

**Round 9,909.937 as indicated.**

Question 10.

To 2 decimal places

Answer:

9,909.937 is rounded to 2 decimal place is **9,909.9.**

Explanation:

If the last digit after decimal point is greater than or equal to 5, then add 1 to before decimal number. Else remove the digit.

9,909.937 the third digit of right of decimal point is 7. Add 1 to the before decimal number then the number is 9,909.94

The second digit after decimal point is 4 which is less than 5.

So remove the number 4, the result is 9,909.9.

Question 11.

To the nearest whole number

Answer:

9,909.937 is rounded to nearest whole number is 9,910.

Explanation:

Here, the hundredths value is 9 which is greater than 5. Increase the whole number ones place by 1, and remove all the digits after the decimal point.

9,909.937 after rounding to the nearest whole number becomes 9,910.

Question 12.

To the nearest whole number

Answer:

9,909.937 is rounded to nearest whole number is 9,910.

Explanation:

Here, the hundredths value is 9 which is greater than 5. Increase the whole number ones place by 1, and remove all the digits after the decimal point.

9,909.937 after rounding to the nearest whole number becomes 9,910.

Question 13.

To the nearest ten

Answer:

9,909.937 is rounded to nearest ten is 9,909.9.

Explanation:

If the digit after tenth is greater than or equal to 5, add 1 to tenth. Else remove the digit.

The third digit after decimal point is 7 which is greater than 5. Add 1 to the 3 which is second digit of the given number is 9,909.94.

The second digit after decimal point is 4 which is less than 5. So, remove the digits after 9.

The Result is equal to 9,909.9
