  • 4252 rounded is 4000.

    When it says "significant number", we assume to round to the nearest thousand. To do this, we look at the hundredths place. If the number in the hundredths place is 1-4, we keep the 4000. If the number is from 1-5, we round up to 5000. Since the hundredths place is 2, we round down to 4000.
