# How do you round 294 to the nearest ten?

Mar 10, 2018

$290$

#### Explanation:

$100 t h = 200$
$10 t h = 90$
$1 t h = 4$

When rounding the nearest $10$ we find which value is closest to $10$.

If the $1 t h$ value or the value followed by the number you are attempting to round is $0 , 1 , 2 , 3$ or $4$ we round down.

If the $1 t h$ value or the value followed by the number you are attempting to round is $5 , 6 , 7 , 8$ or $9$ we round up.

In this case, we round down and so $294$ to the nearest $10$ will be $290$.
