when rounding to the nearest thousand look at the hundreds place if it is less than 5 or 1 2 3 4 then all numbers to the right of the thousands place become zero and the thousands place number remains the same. If the hundreds number is 6 7 8 or 9 then raise the thousands place by one and make every number to the right 0

Ex. 123,976 rounded to the nearest thousand its 124,000
658,209 to the nearest thousand is 658,000
