Rounding to the Nearest Hundred, or Thousand

In the last lesson, you learned to **round to the Tens place**** **.

🤔 Do you remember how you looked at the **Ones place **in order to decide whether to round up or round down?

You’ll use the same rule to round to the nearest **Hundred **or **Thousand!**

Let’s try it out!

Before we round, it’s important to find the number in the place we’re rounding to.

Round342to the nearestHundred.

Which number is in the **Hundreds **place?

3! Great job!

To round, we will look at the number to the right of it.

Then, we follow the rules:

If the number is **five or greater**, we **round up** 👆.

If the number is **four or less**, we **round down** 👇.

The number in the Hundreds place is the number that will change.

Will 3 round up or round down?

4 is the number next to it. So, we round down.

This means 3 will stay the same.

All the numbers after 3 will turn to 0s.

342 rounded to the nearest Hundred is300.

Let’s try another one!

Round **782 **to the nearest **Hundred**.

First, which number is in the Hundreds place?

7! Will we round up or down?

8 is over 5, so we will round up 👆.

We’ll change 7 to 8 and all the other numbers to 0s.

782 rounded to the nearest Hundred is800.

The rules are very similar for rounding to the Thousands place.

Our first step is the same: we have to find the number in the place we’re rounding to.

Round7,346to the nearestThousand.

🤔 Which number is in the Thousands place?

👉 That's right! **7 **is the number in the Thousands place.

To round, we will look at the number to the right of it.

Then, we follow the rules:

If the number is **five or greater****,** we **round up** 👆.

If the number is **four or less****,** we **round down** 👇.

3 is the number next to it. So, we round down.

The means our 7 will stay the same. All the numbers after 7 will turn to 0s.

7,346 rounded to the nearest Thousand is7,000.

Let’s try another one!

Round4,591to the nearestThousand.

First, which number is in the Thousands place?

4! Will we round up or down?

5 meets our rules of “five or greater,” so we **round up**.

We change 4 to 5 and all the other numbers change to 0s.

4,591 rounded to the nearest Thousand is5,000.

Great work! 🤗

The next video covers rounding to the Thousands place, but you won't learn rounding decimals till later!

Great work! 🎉 Now you can move on to your practice!
