How to Round to the Nearest TenthTo round a decimal number to the nearest tenth, check the value of its hundredths. If the value is equal to 5 or greater, increase the value in the tenths place by 1 and then remove all digits to the right after the first decimal place. If the value is equal to 4 or less, simply remove all the digits to the right after the first decimal place.For example:
- 1.25: The hundredths’ value is 5, so we round up: 1.25 → 1.3
- 3.91: The hundredths’ value is 1, so we round down: 3.91 → 3.9
- 1.8: Nothing to be done, the hundredths’ value is 0.
