Rounding Decimals to the Nearest Hundredth

To round number to nearest hundredth, look at the
decimal to the immediate right of the hundredth
place. If it is 5 or above, round up.

If it is 4 or below, round down and leave the
hundredth place digit unchanged.

Example: Round 2.4562 to nearest hundredth.

The 5 is in the hundredth place.

Look at the digit to the immediate right of the
hundredth place.


6 is greater than 5, so round up. Add 1 to the digit you are rounding
to.

2.4662

Replace all digits to right of the one you are rounding to
with zeros.  2.4600


So, 2.4562 rounded to the nearest hundredth is
2.4600



Remember: If less than 5, round down. If 5 or greater, 
round up.
