Question

round 249,982 to the nearest hundred​

2 Answer

  • Hundred (100) means the 3rd number from the right, which is: 249,982 . So use the number before that (further to the right) to determine whether you will round up or stay the same, which is 249,982

    The number before the hundreds spot (8) is greater then 5, therefore we will round the number in the hundreds spot up 1

    Since the number above 9 is 10 you will have to round the number in the thousands spot up as well

    249,982

    And it looks like the number in the thousands spot is 9 and the next number up is 10. This means you will have to round the number in the ten thousands place up 1

    249,982

    so...

    250,000

    Hope this helped!

  • Answer:

    250000

    Step-by-step explanation:

    hundred thousand  ten thousand  thousand, hundred  ten one

     2                                  4                     9           , 9               8   2

    We are rounding to the nearest hundred, so we look at the tens place

    8 ≥5 so we round the hundreds place up

    9 will round to 10 so the thousands place gets one bigger and the hundreds place is a zero

    9 will become to 10 so the ten thousands place gets one bigger at 5 and the thousands place is a zero

    249,982 becomes 250,000
