ROUNDING OFF DECIMAL TO THE NEAREST HUNDREDTHS

__Rounding Off To The
Nearest Hundredths -__

**For rounding
off the decimal fraction to the nearest hundredths, we see the digit in the thousandths place. If it is less than
5 (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4), the digit in the
hundredths place remains the same,
and the digit in the thousandths place is replaced by 0. If the digit in the thousandths place is 5 or
more than 5 (i.e. 5, 6, 7, 8, 9), we
add 1 to the digit in the hundredths
place and replace the digit in the thousandths place by zero.**

__Round off each of the following to the nearest
hundredths :-__

**a) 180.762**

**180.762 has 2 in the thousandths place and 2 < 5, so in the
answer 6 in the hundredths place
remains the same and 2 in the thousandths place is replaced by 0.**

**.: Answer is 180.760
= 180.76 (Ans.)**

**b) 388.008**

**388.008 has 8 in the thousandths place and 8 > 5, so in the answer 0 in the hundredths place becomes 0 + 1 = 1 and
8 in the thousandths place is replaced by 0.**

**.: Answer is 388.010 = 388.01 (Ans.)**
