## 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.

In the table below you can find some numbers rounded to nearest 100th.

### Round up to the Nearest Hundredth

If the thousandths’ value of a certain number is >= 5, then, according to general rounding rules, you round up to the nearest 100th. However, the term *round up to the nearest 100th* means that all thousandths in between 1 and 9 are rounded up by adding 1 to the value in the hundredth’s place, and then removing all digits to the right after the second place.

### Round Down to the Nearest Hundredth

If the thousandths’ value of a certain number is < 5, then, according to general rounding rules, you round down to the nearest 100th. However, the term *round down to the nearest 100th* means that all thousandths in between 1 and 9 are rounded down by removing all the digits to the right after the second decimal place.

## Bottom Line

It is noteworthy that any rounded number has always the same value as the number you started with, but its value is less exact.

Here you can learn how to round to the nearest thousandth.
