ROUNDING

E.G.

Round 23745 to the nearest thousand

First look at the digit in the thousands column

It is 3

This means that the number is inbetween 23000 and 24000

Look at the digit to the right of 3

It is 7

This means that 23745 is closer to 24000

Rule :

If the digit is 5 or more round up and if the digit is 4 or less stay
