It would turn out to be rounded to 1,500.

#### Explanation:

You look at the hundreds place, so 4 in this case, then look at the number in the tens place. If the number there is 5 or a higher number, then you round the 4 in the hundreds place to a 5. In this case it is higher so the answer would be 1,500
