It is not always necessary to give the exact number. For example, if there were 54,785 inhabitants in a town, you could say that its population was approximately 55,000.

By doing this we have rounded 54,785 to the nearest thousand to give 55,000.

Rounding to the nearest 1,000

What is 1,484.5 to the nearest 1,000?

It is between 1,000 and 2,000, but it is closer
