# How do you round 265,427 to the nearest ten thousand?

Kaley

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  .

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

Similar Problems:

Problem 1:

Write the number 234 to nearest tenth.

Solution:

Step:1 The given number is 234.

expand the number in power of 10 as shown below:

Step:2 To round of the number nearest to tenth, analyze the coefficient of  .

Step:3 If coefficient of   is greater than 5 then increase the coefficient of   and eliminate the coefficients   otherwise only eliminate the coefficients  , to round of the number nearest to tenth.

Step:4 Here the coefficient of   is 4, which is less than 5, therefore eliminate the coefficients  , to round of the number nearest to tenth as follows:

Thus, the number 234 round to the nearest tenth is  .
