when you are rounding to things larger than one, you have to zeroes on the end to make the value about as big as the original number

If the number in the ones place is 5 or higher you round up, if 4 and lower you round down

for a rounding problem:
find the digit you are rounding to.
|dw:1366593413146:dw|
the digit after the one you are rounding to might matter, or it might not. See @galacticwavesXX 's answer for that.
all digits to the right of the one you are rounding to become zero.|dw:1366593558213:dw|
