**Rounding to the Nearest Hundred Thousand**

When you are rounding to the nearest hundred thousand,

look at the ten thousands digit of the number.

If the ten thousands digit is 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4, then round

down.

If the ten thousands digit is 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, then round up.

When you round down, the Hundred Thousand digit

doesn't change, but the rest of the digits go to zero.

When you round up, then thousands digit increases by

one, and the rest of the digits go to zero.
