## Rounding Whole Numbers

Rounding whole numbers needs the understanding of the decimal places. To round to the nearest decimal place means to find the closest number having all zeros to the right of the that decimal place. Our rule of rounding numbers states that when the digit 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 appears in the lower one decimal place, round up; when the digit 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 appears in the lower one decimal place, round down.
