Self Check 6 Round each number to the nearest ten: a. 35,642 b. 9,756 Now Try Problem 63 Solution a. We find the rounding digit in the tens column, which is 6. Then we look at the test digit to the right of 6, which is the 1 in the ones column. Since 1 Ͻ 5, we round down by leaving the 6 unchanged and replacing the test digit with 0. Keep the rounding digit: Do not add 1. ᮡ Rounding digit: tens column ᮡ 3,761 3,761 ᮡ ᮡ Test digit: 1 is less than 5. Replace with 0. Thus, 3,761 rounded to the nearest ten is 3,760.
