Solution

## To round a decimal off to its nearest tenths place, we look at the digit in its hundredths place. In 5.149, the digit in the hundredths place is 4. As 4 < 5, we round 5.149 down to get 5.1. The next decimal 5.16 has a 6 in its hundredths place. As 6 > 5, we round 5.16 up to get 5.2. The third decimal 5.34 has a 4 in its hundredths place. As 4 < 5, we round 5.34 down to get 5.3 as its nearest tenths. Finally, in the case of 5.36, the hundredths digit is 6. As 6 > 5, we round 5.36 up to 5.4. ∴ Estimating to the nearest tenths place, we get: 5.149 is rounded down to 5.1 5.16 is rounded up to 5.2 5.34 is rounded down to 5.3 5.36 is rounded up to 5.4
