20. JoshDavoll

is it to the nearest hundredth, pretty?

21. prettyprincess22

the thousand

22. julianassange

Hmm, leme see

23. julianassange

40.380? Maybe?

24. JoshDavoll

tenths | hundredths | thousandths <---- those are your columns to the right of the decimal place. 2 is in the thousandth place, right, because it's in the third column. 2 is closer to 0 than 10 so you round down.

25. JoshDavoll

Do you understand?

26. prettyprincess22

27. JoshDavoll

to the thousandth again?

28. prettyprincess22

tenths

29. JoshDavoll

so which number is in the tenths column?

30. prettyprincess22

6

31. JoshDavoll

yup, so now look to the hundredths place, which is the number just to the right of the 6, and if that one is higher closer to 10 we round up the tenths place and if it's closer to 0 we round down.
