How to round decimals to the nearest tenths?
To round decimals to the nearest tenths, you can use the following steps:
Step 1: Underline the digit in the tenths place.
Step 2: Look at the digit immediately to the right, which is the digit in the hundredths place.
Step 3: If the digit in the hundredths place is 5 or greater, round up to the next tenths.
Step 4: If the digit in the hundredths place is less than 5, the digit in the tenths place remains the same.
For example, let’s say you have the decimal 2.37 that you want to round to the nearest tenths. The digit in the hundredths place is 7. Since 7 is greater than 5, we round 2.37 to 2.4.
Here are some additional examples:
Rounding to the nearest tenths: 4.3
Rounding to the nearest tenths: 7.9
In general, we can use this rhyme to help us remember what to do:
Find the place and look right next door
5 or higher, add one more
4 or less, just ignore
