Rounding Decimals to the Nearest Hundredth

Rounding decimals is very similar to rounding other numbers. If the thousandths place of a decimal is four or less, it is dropped and the hundredths place does not change. For example, rounding 0.843 to the nearest hundredth would give 0.84.

If the thousandths place is five through nine, the hundredths place is increased by one. The decimal 0.846 rounded to the nearest hundredth is 0.85.
