 Rounding 3.445 to the
Tenths Place
 In order to round 3.445 to the tenths place, shouldn't it first
be rounded to 3.45, then to 3.5?
 Rounding Decimals: Even/Odd Issues
 When do you round down, and when do you round up?)
 The rule:
 To "round to the nearest," look at the digit to the immediate right of
the digit you will round to, and
 If the digit to the right of your rounding digit is a five or
greater (5 through 9), round up (add 1 to the digit you are
rounding and drop all the digits to the right, replacing them
with zeros);
 If the digit to the right of your rounding digit is less than 5
(0 through 4), round down (drop all digits to the right of the
digit you are rounding, replacing them with zeros).
 Examples:
 Rounding 361 to the nearest ten:
The digit in the tens place is 6, so we look at the digit to the right
of it (1). That digit is less than 5, so we drop it and replace it
with a zero. 361 rounded to the nearest 10 is 360, which is a multiple
of 10.
 Rounding 361 to the nearest hundred:
The digit in the hundreds place is 3, so we look at the digit to the
right of it (6). That digit is 5 or greater, so we add 1 to the digit
we are rounding and drop all the digits to the right, replacing them
with zeros. 361 rounded to the nearest 100 is 400, which is a multiple
of 100.
 Rounding .361 to the nearest tenth:
The digit in the tenths place is 3, so we look at the digit to the
right of it (6). That digit is 5 or greater, so we add 1 to the digit
we are rounding and drop all the digits to the right. .361 rounded to
the nearest tenth is .4
 Rounding .361 to the nearest hundredth:
The digit in the hundredths place is 6, so we look at the digit to
the right of it (1). That digit is less than 5, so we drop it. .361
rounded to the nearest hundredth is .36
