How to Round Numbers by Place Value? Rounding off is simple when a child has strong concepts of place value. Understanding the place values helps children in several mathematical problems. Every digit in a number system holds a unique place value. Place values a unique value to each digit in a number. Before we get into the details of rounding off, we need to have a clear concept of word problems, especially for decimal number systems. Rounding numbers using place values is not as complex as it sounds. Rounding off makes mathematical problems simple and easy to solve. You can round down a number to make it smaller, or round up to make it a bit larger. The rule of rounding off numbers is; Round down if the number that follows is of a lower value than 5. Round up if the number that follows is equal to five or larger than 5. Rounding off to the nearest hundred position; 8732. The digit under the hundreds value is 7. The number that follows 7 is 3, which is smaller than 5. The number 8732, rounded off to the nearest hundred is 8700. If the number had been 8372, the number rounded off would become 8400. All numbers sitting at the right side of the rounded off digit will all be written as zero, it is a rule of rounding off.
