344.7

#### Explanation:

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{344.7 \textcolor{red}{|} 234}$
$\textcolor{red}{\text{ } \uparrow}$

$\textcolor{red}{\text{Cut off point}}$

The digit to the right of the cut of point is less than 5. So the digit to its left (the 7) is not changed and all those to the right are changed to 0 giving:

$344.7000$

Written as 344.7
