Work Step by Step
We are asked to round 16.8974 to the nearest tenth. Step 1. Draw a cut-off line after the tenths place. We are cutting off the 9, 7, and 4. They will be dropped. Step 2. We look at the first number after the cut-off line, which is 9. Step 3. Since this number is greater than or equal to 5, we round up the number in the tenths place by 1 to 9. Therefore, 16.8974 rounded to the nearest tenth is 16.9.
