How to Round to the Nearest Hundredth?

To round a decimal number to the nearest hundredth, check the value of its thousandths. If the value is equal to 5 or greater, increase the value in the hundredth’s place by 1 and then remove all digits to the right after the second decimal place. If the value is equal to 4 or less, simply remove all the digits to the right after the second decimal place.

For example:

  • 1.255: The thousandths’ value is 5, so we round up: 1.255 → 1.26
  • 5.911: The thousandths’ value is 1, so we round down: 5.911 → 5.91
  • 2.800: Nothing to be done, the thousandths’ value is 0.
