Round 59,803 to the nearest ten, then nearest hundred, and finally nearest thousand. Nearest ten: 59,800. Nearest hundred: 59,800. Nearest thousand: 60,000.

Work Step by Step

When you round any number, if it is above 5 you round up and if it is lower than 5 you round down. In this case, rounding to the nearest ten is rounding to 59,800 because 3 (in the tens place) is lower than 5. Then when rounding to the nearest hundred it is 59,800 because the number 3 is under 5. Nearest thousand is 60,000 because 59,000 is closer to 60,000.
