**Rounding Numbers to the Nearest Hundred**

When you are rounding to the nearest hundred, look at the

tens place digit of the number.

If the tens digit is 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4, then the hundreds digit

does not change. You are rounding down.

If the tens digit is 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, then the hundreds digit

increases by one. You are rounding up.

All the other digits after the hundreds digit (tens digit and

ones digit) go to zero in both cases.

**Example: Round 652 to the nearest hundred.**

The digit in the tens place

is five or more, so round

up to 700

**Example-2: Round 2,345 to the nearest hundred.**

Look to the right of the

hundred place.

The digit in the tens place

is less than 5, so round

down to 2,300
