Answer:

#4.968#

Explanation:

Here is your number sorted into units, tenths, hundredths, thousandths and tens of thousandths.

U . T H Th TTh
0 . 0 0 0 0
4 . 9 6 7 5

So, to round it to the nearest thousandth, we need to concentrate on the number that comes after this place - tens of thousandths. This number will determine whether we round it up or down.

If it is below five, we round down to #4.967#
If it is above or equal to five, then we round up to #4.968#

A handy saying for this is "Five and above go up like a dove."

So, as our number is #4.9675#, we round up to #4.968#.

Hope this helps; let me know if I can do anything else:)
