Find your number. Look right next door. 35 Step 1: Circle the digit in the place that you must round to. Step 2: Draw an arrow to the place on the right. Round to the nearest thousands place., 4 6

000 3 4 6 Step 1: Circle the digit in the place that you must round to. Step 2: Draw an arrow to the place on the right. Step 3: If the number is four or less, then the circled number stays the same. Step 4: All numbers to the right of the circled number become zeros. 4 or less, just ignore. 3 is less than 4 Just Ignore! 5, Round to the nearest thousands place.

Step 2: Draw an arrow to the place on the right. Step 3: If the number is four or less, then the circled number stays the same. Step 4: If the number is 5 or greater, then add 1 to the circled number. Step 5: All numbers to the right of the circled number become zeros. Round to the nearest hundreds place. 5 + 1 = 6 3,

486 + 130 5 1 + = 6 Step 1: Rounding is always first. Decide which place to round to. Step 2: Round each addend to the hundreds place. 0 00 0 The actual answer is 616, so our estimation is pretty accurate. Step 3: Now you can add 500 and 100 mentally.

Step 2: Round the first addend to the thousands place and the second addend to the hundreds place. Step 3: Now you can add 5,000 and 400 mentally. The actual answer is 5,773, so our estimation is pretty accurate Rounding Tip: The lower the place, the more accurate the answer. However, if you round too low, your problem may be more difficult to solve. Rounding Tip: The higher the place, the easier your problem will be to solve. However, your answer may not be as accurate.
