## Rounding To The Nearest Whole

When you are trying to round decimals to the nearest whole, you just need to follow the next steps:

**Step #3:** At this point, you will need to look at the “tenths” place which is the digit immediately to the right of the decimal point.

**Step #4:** Now, you have two different situations that may occur:

1- If the digit in the tenths column is 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4, you will need to round down the number at the ones place to the nearest whole number.

2- If the digit in the tenths column is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9, you will ned to round up the number at the one’s place to the nearest whole number.

**Step #5:** Remove all the digits after the decimal point. The left out number is the desired answer.

Let’s take a look at some practical examples.

**Practical Example:** Let’s say that you want to round 945.65 to the nearest whole number.

So, in order to round it, you just need to follow the previous steps we described.

**Step #1:** 945.65 is the decimal that we want to round to the nearest whole.

**Step #2:** You get 5 in the one’s column.

**Step #3:** You get 6 in the hundredths column (right of 5).

**Step #4: **Since you got 6 in the previous step, then you will need to round up.

**Step #5:** You add 1 to 5 and remove all the digits from the right of the one’s place. So, the result will be 946.
