Rounding Numbers to the Nearest Ten Thousand
When rounding to the nearest ten thousand, If the
number to the right is 5 or more, increase the place
value number by one and make the remaining
numbers zero.
(5 or more round up)

If the number to the right is 4 or less, keep the place
value number the same and make the remaining
numbers to the right zeroes.
( 4 or less round down)
Example: Round 53,364 to the nearest ten thousand.
Look to the right of the ten thousands place.
The number is 3. Three is 4 or less, so we round down.
53,364 = 50,000 ( Round to the nearest thousand)
Example 2: Round 56,364 to the nearest ten thousand.
Look to the right of the ten thousands place.
The number is 6. Six is 5 or more, so we round up.
56,664 = 60,000 ( Round to the nearest thousand)
