Q:
# What is the value of 0.1561 rounded to the nearest tenth

Accepted Solution

A:

Hi!

So the nearest tenth is the number right after the decimal. We are looking at 5 to see if we round up or down.

The rule is that if the number is less than 5 you round down or leave the number that's already before it. If it is 5 or above, you round one point above(in some cases, others it can be more)

The number after the first 1 is 5 and so you round up.

Your answer is 0.2

hope this helps!
