$58.81$

#### Explanation:

Round to $2$ decimal places by cutting off at $2$ decimal places and adjusting according to the next digit.

In our example, $58.8136$ truncated to $2$ decimal places is $58.81$ with following digit $3$.

If the following digit was $5$ or more, then we would add $1$ to the last digit.

Since $3 < 5$ we do not need to adjust the last digit.

$58.8136 \approx 58.81$ rounded to $2$ decimal places.
