How do you round 2,301 to the nearest hundred?

Answer 1

#2300# to the nearest 100

#color(blue)("Answering the question")#

You'll understand what I mean as we proceed. The 'cut off point' as we consider the hundreds is between hundreds and tens.

#23color(red)(|)01# #color(white)(23)color(red)(uarr)# #color(red)("Cut off point")#

Zero is the number immediately to the right of the cutoff point.

If this meets the requirement of "less than 5," which it does, we convert all the digits to the right of the cutoff point—the 3—into zeros instead of changing the digit to the left of the cutoff point. This results in:

#2300# to the nearest 100
#color(magenta)("This is called rounding down")#
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #color(blue)("Additional teaching")#
Suppose the number had been #2371# instead
#23color(red)(|)71# #color(white)(23)color(red)(uarr)# #color(red)("Cut off point")#

'5 or more' describes the digit that is to the right of the cutoff point.

This time, we multiply three by one before writing all of the numbers as zero to the right, resulting in:

#2400# to the nearest 100
#color(magenta)("This is called rounding up")#

Answer 2

To round 2,301 to the nearest hundred, we look at the tens digit, which is 0. Since the digit in the hundreds place is 3, which is 5 or greater, we round up. Therefore, 2,301 rounded to the nearest hundred is 2,300.

Answer 3

To round 2,301 to the nearest hundred, you look at the digit in the tens place. If it's 5 or greater, you round up; if it's less than 5, you round down.

In this case, the digit in the tens place is 0. Since 0 is less than 5, you round down. Therefore, 2,301 rounded to the nearest hundred is 2,300.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
