# How do you round 0.76133 to 1 decimal place?

Dec 9, 2016

$0.8$

#### Explanation:

$0 \textcolor{red}{.7} \textcolor{b l u e}{6} 133$

To round to 1 decimal place (which represents tenths), means we want the answer as either $\textcolor{red}{0.7} \text{ or } \textcolor{red}{0.8}$

You need to look at the digit in the 2nd decimal place (hundredths).
If that digit is 5 or more, you round UP to the next tenth (8).

If that digit is less than 5 you round DOWN to the given tenth (7)

We see that the second digit is $\textcolor{b l u e}{6}$

We round up to 1 decimal place to get $\textcolor{red}{0.8}$

This is comparable to $76$ being closer to $80$ than $70$
