Chapter 4 - Decimals - 4.2 Rounding Decimal Numbers - 4.2 Exercises: 7

Answer

0.956

Work Step by Step

We are asked to round 0.95647 to the nearest thousandth. Step 1. Draw a cut-off line after the thousandths place. We are cutting off the 4 and 7. They will be dropped. Step 2. We look at the first number after the cut-off line, which is 4. Step 3. Since this number is less than 5, the number in the thousandths place stays the same. Therefore, 0.95647 rounded to the nearest hundredth is 0.956.
