are you trying to round 44.8 to the nearest whole number ?

2. anonymous

yes . Round to the nearest whole number. 44.8 45 448 40 44

3. anonymous

4. texaschic101

look at the next number...the one after 44....the 8...if it is 5 or above, you round up to 45, but if it is 4 or below, you keep it the same and it would be 44. So what do you think ?

5. anonymous

can you tell me

6. texaschic101

just this once.....44.8 would round up to 45

7. anonymous

ound to the nearest whole number. 75.7 757 76 70 75

8. texaschic101

same way....75.7.....look at the number right after the decimal....the 7....since it is above 5, we round up making it 76....understand ?

Round to the nearest whole number. 46.71 47 46 46.7 50

10. anonymous

i understand

11. texaschic101

you have to try some of these. Look at the next number after the decimal...it is 7, it is above 5, so you round up to the next whole number. So what do you think the answer is ?

12. anonymous

here is my anther queRound to the nearest whole number. 46.71 47 46 46.7 50

13. texaschic101

that is the one I just gave you an explanation for.

14. anonymous

46

15. texaschic101

No.. since the number right after the decimal is 7...it is above 5, so you would round UP making your answer 47

16. anonymous

Round to the nearest whole number. 75.5 755 70 76 75

17. texaschic101

examples : 45.2 --- the 2 is below 4 so the whole number stays the same...rounds to 45 45.6 -- the 6 is above 5 so the whole number would round up to 46 45.5 -- if the number to the right of the decimal is 5 or above, you round up making it again equal 46 do you understand any of this ?? If the number right after the decimal is 5 or above, you round the whole number up and if it is 4 or below, the whole number stays the same.

18. anonymous

no i dont

19. texaschic101

so...75.5......the whole number you have is 75...but the number after the decimal is 5, so you would round up to the next whole number, which is 76

20. texaschic101

25. anonymous

yes

26. texaschic101

27. anonymous

53

28. texaschic101

correct....now you look at the number after the decimal...it is a 2.....is 2 less then 5 ?

29. texaschic101

because if it is less then 5, you do not round up...the whole number would stay the same

30. anonymous

Round to the nearest whole number. 27.6 28 20 276 27

31. texaschic101

53.21 would round to 53 because that 2 after the decimal is less then 5. If it would have been 53.6.....being that the 6 is above 5, then it would round up to 54

32. texaschic101

27.6.....the 6 is above 5, so your whole number rounds up to the next whole number

33. anonymous

34. texaschic101

whats the next whole number after 27 ?

35. anonymous

28

36. texaschic101

correct :)

37. anonymous

. Round to the nearest whole number. 51.38 50 51.4 52 51

38. texaschic101

51.38.....the number after the decimal is 3.....so you would not round up to the next whole number...the whole number would stay the same.

39. anonymous

Round to the nearest whole number. 76.39 76.4 80 77 76

40. texaschic101

the whole number is either gonna round up, or it is gonna stay the same....it does not round down to the lower whole number 76.39......the 3 is below 5, so the whole number stays the same...rounded = 76

49. texaschic101

whats the number after the decimal ? If it is below 4, the whole number stays the same...if it is 5 or above, it would round to the next whole number. So what do you think ?

50. anonymous

51. texaschic101

wait...you are rounding to the nearest tenths......so now we look at the number in the tenths place...that is 1....you want to then look at the number to the right of that, it is 5....so you would round up making it 5.2

52. texaschic101
