What is Meant by Rounding to the Nearest Tenth?
In Mathematics, the decimal number is the combination of the whole number and a fraction separated by a decimal point. From left to right, the place value of the digits is divided by 10. Thus, the decimal place value will help to determine the place values of tenths, hundredths, thousands. For example, the place value tenth is defined as 1/10 (one-tenth).
Consider a decimal number 12.345.
Here, the tenth place value is 3.
The decimal number can be rounded by replacing the number with the approximation of the number. For example, the decimal number 5.8 rounded to the nearest integer is 6. Similarly, we can round the decimal number to its nearest tenths place value. The tenth place value is the first number which appears first after the decimal point. To round the decimal number to its nearest tenth, look at the hundredth number. If that number is greater than 5, add 1 to the tenth value. If it is less than 5, leave the tenth place value as it is, and remove all the numbers present after the tenth’s place.
4.624 rounded to the nearest tenth is 4.6. Because the hundredths place value “2” is less than 5.
7.469 rounded to the nearest tenth is 7.5, as the hundredth’s place value “6” is greater than 5.
