to the nearest 10

When you are rounding a number to the nearest 10, you are trying to find out which multiple of 10 your number is closest to.

The golden rule with rounding is that if a number is exactly halfway between two multiples of 10, you always round up.

How to round a number to the nearest 10

Look at the *ones* digit.

*if it is less than 5 then round the number down*by changing the ones digit to zero;*if it is 5 or more then round the number up*by adding one on to the tens digit and changing the ones digit to zero.

Examples

- 37 rounds up to 40 because the ones digit is 7.
- 63 rounds down to 60 because the ones digit is 3.
- 145 rounds up to 150 because the ones digit is a 5.
