33 Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Rounding Whole Numbers Rounding a whole number means approximating it. 26 is closer to 30 than 20, so 26 is rounded to the nearest ten is 30. 52 is closer to 50 than 60, so 52 is rounded to the nearest ten is 50.

44 Copyright © 2012 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall. Rounding Whole Numbers 25 is halfway between 20 and 30. It is not closer to either number. In such a case, we round to the larger ten, that is, to 30.

Rounding Whole Numbers Rounding Whole Numbers to a Given Place Value Step 1: Locate the digit to the right of the given place value. Step 2: If this digit is 5 or greater, add 1 to the digit in the given place value and replace each digit to its right by 0. Step 3: If this digit is less than 5, replace it and each digit to its right by 0.
