3,800

#### Explanation:

The 'nearest hundred' means the closest number to the given that is a multiple of 100 (e.g. 200, 4,900, etc.).

3,779 is between 3,700 and 3,800. Since 3,779 is closer to 3,800, you round up to 3,800. When rounding to hundreds, round down for numbers between 1 and 49, inclusive (e.g. 214 become 200) and round up for numbers between 50 and 99, inclusive (e.g. 50 becomes 100).
