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  .

 

Answer:

 

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