2,253: Round off the integer number to the nearest ten (2 whole places)

2,253 rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places) = ?

How is the number rounded off? Half Up, Half Down, Half Away From Zero, Half Towards Zero, Half to Even, Half to Odd. To Ceiling, To Floor.

Rounding a number means replacing it with a simpler, shorter approximation, while keeping its value close to the initial one. The rounded number will be less accurate, but easier to work with.

How is the number rounded off? Explanation.

Counting by tens (2 whole places at a time), our number is sitting on the axis of numbers between two consecutive neighboring numbers:
2,250 < 2,253 < 2,260


Our number is to be rounded off to one of these neighbors, the closer one.


The middle of this interval, the number that is equally close to the either neighbor, is: (2,250 + 2,260) ÷ 2 = 2,255


Our number, 2,253, is smaller than 2,255, so it is closer to the smaller neighbor: 2,250


Except for 'To Ceiling, To Floor', the rounded off number (both the positive and the negative) will be equal only to this smaller neighbor.


Rule of thumb:

Rounding digit. Let's call the digit of the position place that is intended to round off to as the 'rounding digit'. The digit is 5: 2,253

In a positive number, if the digit to the right of the 'rounding digit' is smaller than 5, then the number is rounded to the smaller neighbor.

The digit is 3: 2,253 ≈ 2,250 rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places).


Or, even simpler.
In any number rounded to whole places, if the digit to the right of the 'rounding digit' is less than 5 (0 to 4), then leave the 'rounding digit' as it is and replace all the digits to the right of it with zeros:

2,253 ≈ 2,250 rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Below we round off both the positive and the negative:

Half Up, Half Down, Half Away From Zero, Half Towards Zero, Half to Even, Half to Odd. To Ceiling, To Floor.


Number Round Half Up:

Numbers that are halfway between two neighbors are rounded off to the larger neighbor. 2,253 is not halfway between its neighbors.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Half Down:

Numbers that are halfway between two neighbors are rounded off to the smaller neighbor. 2,253 is not halfway between its neighbors.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Half Away From Zero:

Numbers that are halfway between two neighbors are rounded off to the neighbor which is farther away from zero. 2,253 is not halfway between its neighbors.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Half Towards Zero:

Numbers that are halfway between two neighbors are rounded off to the neighbor which is closer towards zero. 2,253 is not halfway between its neighbors.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Half to Even:
(Gaussian Rounding or Banker's Rounding)

Numbers that are halfway between two neighbors are rounded off to the neighbor with an even rounding digit. 2,253 is not halfway between its neighbors.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Half to Odd:
(Gaussian Rounding or Banker's Rounding)

Numbers that are halfway between two neighbors are rounded off to the neighbor with an odd rounding digit. 2,253 is not halfway between its neighbors.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Ceiling:

All the numbers that are between two neighbors are always rounded off to the larger neighbor.


2,253 ≈ 2,260


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,250


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)


Number Round Floor:

All the numbers that are between two neighbors are always rounded off to the smaller neighbor.


2,253 ≈ 2,250


- 2,253 ≈ - 2,260


rounded to the nearest ten (2 whole places)
