Rounding Worksheets

What is Rounding? To simplify a number to make a numeric problem easier to solve, we use the concept of rounding-off. It can simplify a complex number as it allows adjusting the digits. The answers to numeric problems where students use rounding off are estimated answers and are not precise. It is an acceptable technique in situations where precision is not required. It is important to have a clear understanding of place values before one can learn to round off. Both these concepts can really ease out rough calculations. There are several rules that you need to follow when rounding of a number; Rule 1: - When the digit on the unit's place is less than 5, the number is to be rounded down. Rule 2: - When the digit on the unit's place is greater than or equal to 5, the number is to be rounded up. After you decide the last digit, you want to keep and if the digit next to it is less than five, you have to leave it as it is. The practice is known as rounding down. In case the digit is five or greater than 5, you add one to the number and this practice is known as rounding up. There are hundreds of new worksheets coming available for this skill in the coming weeks.
