Rounding Decimals

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.

Here you will find a range of free printable math worksheets to help your child learn to round numbers to the nearest one.

These sheets are carefully graded so that the easier sheets come first and give extra support.
