Watch out for numbers which have 9 in the tenths column.
e.g If you are rounding up, you will make 10 tenths. This makes 1 unit, so you have to round to the next whole number (in this case to 3).

Watch out for numbers which have 9 in the tenths column.
e.g If you are rounding up, you will make 10 tenths. This makes 1 unit, so you have to round to the next whole number (in this case to 3). For the same reason, becomes 24
