# Rounding Decimal Numbers Part 2

Recall the place value chart. The number 61.567 can be written in the place value chart as follows:

 Ones Tens . Tenths Hundredths Thousandths 6 1 . 5 6 7

Steps for rounding decimals:

To round the decimal number to a given place, locate the rounding digit (which is the digit at the place you are rounding to). Then, check the digit immediately to its right.

• If this digit is 5 or more, then add 1 to the rounding digit (this is called rounding up) and remove all the digits to its right.

• If this digit is less than 5, then keep the rounding digit the same (this is called rounding down) and remove all the digits to its right.

For example: To round the number 56.379 to the nearest hundredths, look at its thousandths place digit.

It is 9, which is greater than 5. So, we round up.

56.379 → 56.38

So, 56.379 rounded to the nearest hundredth is 56.38.
