Rules for rounding decimals to the nearest whole number:
● To round a decimal to the nearest whole number analyse the digit at the first decimal place i.e., tenths place.
● If the tenths place value is 5 or greater than 5, then the digit at the ones place increases by 1 and the digits at the tenths place and thereafter becomes 0.
For example;
(i) 9.63 →
In 9.63 analyse the digit at the tenths place. Here 6 is more than 5. Therefore we have to round the number up to the nearest whole number 10.
(ii) 78.537 →
In 78.537 analyse the digit at the tenths place. Here 5 is equal to 5. Therefore we have to round the number up to the nearest whole number 79.
● If the tenths place value is less than 5, then the digit at the ones place remains the same but the digits at the tenths place and thereafter becomes 0. Check for essay writing service.
