When you are rounding to the nearest 10 thousand place you are technically adding 5000 vice 5 to the thousand place. For example: 999,533 +5,000  1004,533>1,000,000 rounded. So, if you are rounding to the 10 thousand place, add 5000. If you are rounding to the nearest 100, add 50 and so on. Of course you could also add 10,000 if your are rounding to the nearest ten thousand. That gives the same answer as adding 5000 to the place at the right. In either case, all the digits to the right of the place being rounded to become zero. Place rounding to  place to the right  10,000  add 5000 1,000  add 500 100  add 50 10  add 5
