If the digit to the right is 5 or greater, add 1 to the digit to be rounded. Replace all digits to the right with zeros. b. If the digit to the right is less than 5, do not change the digit to be rounded. Replace all digits to the right with zeros.**“Rounding”: Examples**“Round” 37 to the nearest “ten”. If the digit in the place to the right is 5 or greater, add 1 and replace all digits to the right with zeros. 40 What if it said “round to the nearest 100?**Estimation Examples**You select 4 items at a store costing $2.56, $4.44, $3.95, $7.22.
