4. NatalieLove

84

5. Peter14

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

6. NatalieLove

always get confused even have a chart but still

7. NatalieLove

840

8. NatalieLove

like that ?

9. galacticwavesXX

Yeah

10. Peter14

yes

11. galacticwavesXX

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

12. Peter14

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|

13. Peter14

does that make things clearer?

14. galacticwavesXX

The ones place is 7 @Peter14 so you round up to 840 not down

15. Peter14

I know. I was going to explain that next.

16. Peter14

@NatalieLove does that make things clearer? there is still one step left to explain

17. NatalieLove

go its great thank you both

18. Peter14

I think I should try to explain it completely.

19. Peter14

"always get confused even have a chart but still " not good.
