**Rounding Numbers to the Nearest Ten**

**Rounding Numbers to the Nearest Ten**

When you are rounding to the nearest ten, the rules

are:

To round a number to nearest ten place, look at the

digit to its

right. If it is 5 or more, round up. If it is 4 or less,

round down.

If a number ends in 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, then round up.

If a number ends in 1, 2, 3, or 4, then round down.

Example: 671 rounded to the nearest ten is 670, because

the digit to the right of the tens place ended with one, so

we round down.**Round 16 to the nearest ten**

Look to right of the tens place. 6 is more than 5, so

round to 20.

When you round up the digit in the tens place increases by one.

**16 rounded to the nearest ten = 20**
