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
