Rounding to the Nearest TenthThe tenth place is the first number after the decimal. If the instructions say to round to the nearest tenth, your answer should only have one number after the decimal (like 3.1, 72.5, or 0.4)
Step 1: Draw a line after the number in the tenths place (after the first number to the right of the decimal). Step 2: Decide if the number in the tenths place should stay the same or round up. To decide, look at the number after the line you drew in Step 1. If it is 5 or higher, you'll round up. If it is 4 or less, the number in the tenths place stays the same. ExampleRound 12.364 to the nearest tenth.
