Rounding
1. Look at the number of the place you "round nearest to"
ex. 21 566 310. 12
round to nearest one thousand
 the number to round is 6 310. 12
2. Look at the number to the NEXT right of the number to round
ex. 6
3
10. 12
3. a) If the NEXT RIGHT number is <5 then the rounded numbers stays the same
b) If the NEXT RIGHT numbers is > or = to five, the rounded number + 1
ex. 3 is < 5 so 6 stays the same
4. the rest of the numbers to the right of the ROunded number change to zero
ex. 6 000. 00
5. the numbers to the LEFT of the ROUNDED number do NOT change
ex. so the final number is 21 566 000. 00
ex. 21 566 510.12 round to the nearest one thousand
1) The rounded number is 6
2) The NEXT RIGHT number is 5
3b) is true 5 = 5
4) 6510.12 changes to 7 000.00
5) 21 567 000.00
