    are you allowed a calculator? if so, find sqrt(46) and write down the answer, including 2 numbers after the decimal point. then round that number.

    the sqrt(46) is about 6.78 but to round it the the nearest tenth you have to choose 6.7 or 6.8 look at a number line |dw:1328287934700:dw|

    or just follow the rule. look at the number after the 7. If it is 5 or bigger, make the 7 and 8

    I think it's 6.8. I'm pretty sure... Am I right?

    yes. if you started with 6.74, you would round it to 6.7 (because the 4 after the 7 is less than 5)

    but you have 6.78, and 8 is 5 or bigger, so round to 6.8
