Round off to Nearest 10
Round off to nearest 10 is discussed here. Rounding can be done for every place-value of number. To round off a number to the nearest tens, we round off to the nearest multiple of ten.
A large number may be rounded off to the nearest 10.
Rules for Rounding off to the Nearest 10:
Rule I. While rounding off to the nearest ten if the digit in the units place is between 0 – 4 i.e., < 5 then the unit digit is replaced by 0.
Rule II. If the digit in the units place is 5 to 9 i.e., > or 5 but < 10, then the units place is replaced by ‘0’ and the tens place increased by 1.
Examples on rounding off to the nearest ten (10):
1. Aaron has 63 marbles rounded 63 to the nearest tens.
63 lies between 60 and 70 (multiples of 10)
63 is nearer to 60 than 70
So, we can say Aaron has about 60 marbles.
Similarly let us round the following numbers to the nearest ten.
(i) 43 → 40
We see the digit in the ones place is 3, now round to the nearest multiple of 10 which is smaller than the number. Hence, 43 is nearer to 40 than 50.
(ii) 158 → 160
We see the digit in the ones place is 8, now round to the nearest multiple of 10 which is greater than the number. Hence, 158 is nearer to 160 than 150.
(iii) 3501 → 3500
We see the digit in the ones place is 1, now round to the nearest multiple of 10 which is smaller than the number. Hence, 3501 is nearer to 3500 than 3510.
(iv) 1023 → 1020
We see the digit in the ones place is 3, now round to the nearest multiple of 10 which is smaller than the number. Hence, 1020 is nearer to 1020 than 1030.
(v) 6275985 → 6275990
We see the digit in the ones place is 5, now round to the nearest multiple of 10 which is greater than the number. Hence, 6275985 is nearer to 6275990 than 6275980.
2. Round off 14,57,894 to the nearest 10.
Solution:
We choose the two multiple of 10 just greater than and just
less than 14,57,894 on the number line.
We observe that 14,57,894 is closer to 14,57,890. So, it is
rounded down to 14,57,890.
Frequently asked questions on Round off to Nearest 10
1. How do you round to the nearest 10?
Step I: Replace ones digit by 0.
Step II: If ones digit is 5 or more than 5, then increase the tens digit by 1, otherwise do not change the tens digit.
Step III: Leave rest of the digits unchanged.

We will solve different types of problems given in the Worksheet on H.C.F. and L.C.M. I. Find highest common factor of the following by complete factorisation: (i) 48, 56, 72 (ii) 198, 360 (iii) 102, 68, 136 (iv) 1024, 576 (v) 405, 783, 513
We will learn addition of integers using number line. We know that counting forward means addition. When we add positive integers, we move to the right on the number line. For example to add +2 and +4 we move 4 steps to the right of +2. Thus, +2 +4 = +6.
The rules to add integers are as follows: Rule 1: When the two integers have the positive sign, add the integers and assign the (+) sign to the sum.
What are integers? The negative numbers, zero and the natural numbers together are called integers. A collection of numbers which is written as …….. -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4……… . These numbers are called integers.
To find out factors of larger numbers quickly, we perform divisibility test. There are certain rules to check divisibility of numbers. Divisibility tests of a given number by any of the number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 can be perform simply by examining the digits of the
While rounding off to the nearest thousand, if the digit in the hundreds place is between 0 – 4 i.e., < 5, then the hundreds place is replaced by ‘0’. If the digit in the hundreds place is = to or > 5, then the hundreds place is replaced by ‘0’ and the thousands place is
While rounding off to the nearest hundred, if the digit in the tens place is between 0 – 4 i.e. < 5, then the tens place is replaced by ‘0’. If the digit in the units place is equal to or >5, then the tens place is replaced by ‘0’ and the hundreds place is increased by 1.
Rounding numbers is required when we deal with large numbers, for example, suppose the population of a district is 5834237, it is difficult to remember the seven digits and their order
We will learn how to solve step-by-step the word problems on multiplication and division of whole numbers. We know, we need to do multiplication and division in our daily life. Let us solve some word problem examples.
Common multiples of two or more given numbers are the numbers which can exactly be divided by each of the given numbers. Consider the following. (i) Multiples of 3 are: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, …………etc. Multiples of 4 are: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, …………… etc.
Common factors of two or more numbers are a number which divides each of the given numbers exactly. For examples 1. Find the common factor of 6 and 8. Factor of 6 = 1, 2, 3 and 6. Factor
The properties of division are discussed here: 1. If we divide a number by 1 the quotient is the number itself. In other words, when any number is divided by 1, we always get the number itself as the quotient. For example: (i) 7542 ÷ 1 = 7542 (ii) 372 ÷ 1 = 372
To multiply a number by 10, 100, or 1000 we need to count the number of zeroes in the multiplier and write the same number of zeroes to the right of the multiplicand. Rules for the multiplication by 10, 100 and 1000: If we multiply a whole number by a 10, then we write one
