    Ah, I read thousandth. :) @jim_thompson5910 is correct that you are rounding to a whole number.

    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)
