**place**value, the digitto the right of the

**place**value you're

**rounding**to.For example, if you want to

**round to the nearest**ten you'dlook at the

**ones place**. If the digit in the next smallest

**place**value is less than five (0, 1, 2, 3, or 4), you leavethe digit you want to

**round**to as-is.

Also question is, how do you round when it's a 9?

When the number is 5-**9**, you **round** the number upto the next highest number. When we **round** a number, we**round** it to the nearest place value.

**Things to Remember**

- If the number is 0-4 ----> round down.
- If the number is 5-9 ----> round up.
- You need to know what place value you are rounding to.

Additionally, what is 1.5 rounded to the nearest whole number? **Rounding Whole** Numbers[edit] Following the same logic, one could **round to thenearest whole number**. For example, **1.5** (pronounced as"one point five" or "one and a half") would be **rounded** up to2, and 2.1 would be **rounded** down to 2.

Consequently, which digit is in the ones place?

The left **digit** is the tens' **place**. Ittells you that there are 8 tens. The last or right **digit** isthe **ones**' **place** which is 4 in this example.Therefore, there are 8 sets of 10, plus 4 **ones** in the number84.

What is expanded form?

When we **expand** a number to show the value of eachdigit, we're writing that number in **expanded form**. Writingnumbers in **expanded form** just means that we're showing thevalue of each digit in the number. This **form** is handybecause it shows what a number really means by defining each of itsdigits.
