These rounding word problems are great for ages 8 and older who are looking to improve their rounding skills.
20
When rounding to the nearest 10, we need to look at the first digit which is 5.
If the digit is 5 then we automatically round up which means we are on 20.
290
288 is closer to 290 than 280.
0
We have to look at the second digit when rounding to the nearest 100
The second digit is 3 which means we need to round down to zero.
870
When rounding to the nearest ten, look at the first digit which is “1”. Since it is less than five we round down
290
288 is closer to 290 than 280.
120
33 + 88 = 121
Then 121 rounded to the nearest 10 is 120
400
We need to look at the second digit when rounding to the nearest 100
The second digit is 3 which means we round down to 400.
500
Rounding to the nearest hundred means we must look at the second digit and see if it is above or equal to 5.
If it is above or equal to 5 then we round up, if not then we round down.
In this case, the second digit is 5 so we round up. And if we round up we get to 500.
120
55 + 66 = 121
Then 121 rounded to the nearest 10 is 120
430
429 is closer to 430 than 420.
