Oct 26, 2016

$8 , 428$ rounded to the nearest hundred is $8 , 000$

#### Explanation:

We have the number $8 , 428$ and we want to round it to the nearest hundred.
In order to round it to the nearest hundred, though, let's go over some rules...

1) If the number is more than $500$, then you round up. If the number is less than $500$, then you round down.

In this case, the $428$ in $8 , 428$ is less than $500$, so $8 , 428$
rounded to the nearest hundred is $8 , 000$

Hope this helps!
