## 01 – Rounding

The moon is an average of **384,400 km** away from the Earth, but an answer of ‘about **380,000 km**‘, is fine.

We can round off numbers to the nearest **10,000**, nearest **1,000,** nearest **100**, nearest **10**, nearest whole number, or any other specified number.

Example:

** **

Round **384,400** to the nearest thousand.

First, look at the digit in the thousands place. It is **4**. So the number lies between **384,000** and **385,000**

Look at the digit to the right of the **4**. It is **4**. So **384,400** is closer to **384,000** than 385,000.

**Remember: The rule for rounding**
