Work Step by Step

We are asked to round 476.1196 to the nearest thousandth. Step 1. Draw a cut-off line after the thousandths place. We are cutting off the 6. It will be dropped. Step 2. We look at the first digit after the cut-off line, which is 6. Step 3. Since this number is greater than or equal to 5, we round up the digit in the thousandths place by 1 to 10. We write the digit in the thousandths place as 0 and regroup 1 to the hundredths place. Therefore, 476.1196 rounded to the nearest thousandth is 476.120.
