See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

To round a number, you take the number to the right of where you want the number to be accurate to. In this problem the second decimal place is $\textcolor{red}{3}$:

$7.8 \textcolor{red}{3} 65$

The number to the right of it is $\textcolor{b l u e}{6}$:

$7.8 \textcolor{red}{3} \textcolor{b l u e}{6} 5$

If the number to the right is greater than or equal to $5$ you add 1 to the number and eliminate all of the other numbers to the right.

If the number to the right is less than $5$ you leave the number as is and eliminate all of the other numbers to the right.

In this case $\textcolor{b l u e}{6}$ is greater than or equal to $5$ so we need to add $1$ to $\textcolor{red}{3}$ and eliminate all the other numbers to the right:

$7.8 \textcolor{red}{3} \textcolor{b l u e}{6} 5$ accurate to the second decimal place is $7.8 \textcolor{red}{4}$
