How to round decimals to the nearest whole number?
To round decimals to the nearest whole number, you can use the following steps:
Step 1: Underline the digit in the ones place.
Step 2: Look at the digit immediately to the right of the decimal point.
Step 3: If the digit to the right of the decimal point is 5 or greater, round up to the next whole number.
Step 4: If the digit to the right of the decimal point is less than 5, round down to the current whole number.

For example, let’s say you have the decimal 3.6 that you want to round to the nearest whole number. The digit immediately to the right of the decimal point is 6. Since 6 is greater than 5, we round 3.6 to 4.

Decimal: 4.3
Rounding to the nearest whole number: 4
Decimal: 7.8
Rounding to the nearest whole number: 8

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
