Thank you! I was looking at 2 other videos and they would leave everything to the right of the mark zero! I was so confused as to why would they do that is that wrong? I have always been taught to do it this way but, not the other way…I’ve always thought the answer for rounding 9.564 = 9.6 to the nearest tenth but, in the other videos they would put 9.564 = 9.600….they left the trailing zero wouldn’t that be wrong?Β  Please reply my exam is in 2 weeks! Thank you! π

Rounding decimals is very similar to rounding other numbers. If the hundredths and thousandths places of a decimal is forty-nine or less, they are dropped and the tenths place does not change.

For example, rounding 0.843 to the nearest tenth would give 0.8.

If the hundredths and thousandths places are fifty or more, the tenths place is increased by one. The decimal 0.866 rounded to the nearest tenth is 0.9
