ROUNDING OFF DECIMAL FRACTION TO NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER

__Rounding Off A Decimal Fraction To The Nearest Whole Number -__

**For rounding
off the decimal fraction to the nearest whole number, we see the digit in the tenths place. If it is less than 5 (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4), the digit in the ones
place remains the same. If the digit
in the tenths place is 5 or more than 5 (i.e.
5, 6, 7, 8, 9), we add 1 to the
digit in the ones place.**

**Examples -**

__i) Round off 88.4582 to
the nearest whole number. -__

**We look at the
digit in the tenths place (i.e. immediately after the decimal). In 88.4582 since 4 < 5,
the nearest whole number to 88.4582 will be 88**

__ii) Round off 714.806 to
the nearest whole number. -__

**We look at the
digit in the tenths place (i.e. immediately after the decimal). In 714.806 since 8 > 5, the nearest whole number to 714.806
will be 715**

**Round off the following as instructed :-**

**a) To the nearest
meter :-**

**19.67 m**

**We look at the
digit in the tenths place (i.e. immediately after the decimal). In 19.67 m since 6 > 5, 19.67 m round off to
the nearest meter will be 20 m.**

**b) To the nearest
liter :-**

**3.467 l**

**We look at the digit in the tenths place (i.e. immediately after the
decimal). In 3.467 l since 4 <
5, 3.467 l round off to the
nearest liter will be
3 l.**

**c) To the nearest kg :-**

**4.576 kg**

**We look at the
digit in the tenths place (i.e. immediately after the decimal). In 4.576 m since 5 = 5, 4.576 kg round
off to the nearest kg will be 5 kg.**
