## Rounding | ## more ... |

Rounding means reducing the digits in a number while trying to keep its value similar. The result is less accurate, but easier to use. This is the common method * Decide which is the last digit to keep * Increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up) * Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down) Example: 243 rounded to the nearest ten is 240 (because 3 is less than 5) |
