## Understanding Types of Rounding

**Decimal Rounding: ** Rounding to a specified number of decimal places, such as tenths, hundredths or thousandths (up to millionths).

**Whole Number Rounding: ** Rounding to the nearest negative integer, tens, hundreds, thousands, etc.

**Fractional Rounding: **Rounding to the nearest fraction, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, etc.

### Example Number: 15.678

**Decimal Rounding:** Rounding 15.678 to hundredths (2 decimal places).

Step 1: Determine the hundreds digit of the number as (6) and the following digit as (7).

Step 2: Round up the hundreds digit because the following digit is 5 or greater.

Result: 15.678 rounded to hundredths is 15.68.

**Whole Number Rounding:** Rounding 15.678 to the nearest whole number.

Step 1: Find the whole number part (15) and the first decimal place (6).

Step 2: Round up because the first decimal place is 5 or more.

Result: 15.678 rounded to the nearest whole number is 16.

**Fractional Rounding:** Rounding 15.678 to the nearest 1/8.

Step 1: First divide the number by the fraction (1/8) to find the nearest multiple.

15.678 / 0.125 = 125.424

Step 2: Round 125.424 to the nearest whole number.

125.424 rounded to the nearest whole number is 125.

Step 3: Multiply the result by a fraction (1/8) to get the rounded value.

125 * 0.125 = 15.625

Result: 15,678 rounded to the nearest 1/8 is 15 5/8 or 15.625
