Round the following value to the nearest thousands: 6510.306 6510.31
no that's not correct
|dw:1366580708485:dw|
the thousands place is here |dw:1366580730348:dw|
NOT here |dw:1366580747300:dw|
Ah, I read thousandth. :) @jim_thompson5910 is correct that you are rounding to a whole number.
yeah i make that mixup all the time too
i thought it was the other one always. 7000
yep it's 7000 since the next digit over is 5 or more or you can think of 6510.306 as a number that's closer to 7000 (than it is to 6000)
btw, I think you were thinking of the thousandths place but in this case, they wanted the thousands places (subtle difference)
