**Rounding off decimals**

- Decide rounding off is required upto which place or position.
- Consider the number in the next position after the considered place.
- If the number is greater than or equal to 5 increase the value of the number at the place considered by 1.
- If the number is less than 5 then remove all numbers after the considered place.

**E.g.**

**1.** Round off 546.468 to 2 decimal places.

The number at the position after 2 decimal places is 8.

It is greater than 5 so increase 6 by 1.

Thus, 546.468 after rounding off to 2 decimal places becomes 546.47

**2.** Round off 345.774 to 2 decimal places.

The number at the position after 2 decimal places is 4.

It is smaller than 5 so remove all numbers after 2 decimal places.

Thus, 345.774, when rounded off to 2 decimal places, becomes 345.77
