**Solution:**

**Step:1** The given number is 265,427.

expand the number in power of 10 as shown below:

To round of the number nearest to 10000 or , analyze the coefficient of , , and .

**Step:2 **If coefficient of is greater than 5 then increase the coefficient of and eliminate the coefficients , and otherwise eliminate the coefficients , and , to round of the number nearest to ten thousand.

**Step:3 **But here the coefficient of is equal to 5, in this case check the coefficient of , if it is other than 0 then increase the coefficient of and eliminate the coefficients , and , to round of the number nearest to ten thousand.

**Step:4 **Here, coefficient of is 4, therefore increase the coefficient of and eliminate the coefficients , and , to round of the number nearest to ten thousand as follows:

Thus, the number 265,427 round to the nearest ten thousand is .
