Rounding to the nearest whole number

When you are rounding a number to the nearest whole number, you are trying to find out which whole number (or integer) your number is closest to.

How to round a number to the nearest integer (whole number)

Look at the tenths digit (the digit after the decimal point).

  • if it is less than 5 then round the number down by removing the decimal part of the number;
  • if it is 5 or more then round the number up by adding one on to the ones digit and removing the decimal part of the number.

Examples

  • 3.8 rounds up to 4 because the tenths digit is an 8.
  • 6.29 rounds down to 6 because the tenths digit is a 2.
  • 12.527 rounds up to 13 because the tenths digit is a 5.
