5.5677667877: Round off the (terminating) decimal number to the nearest tenth (1 decimal place)

5.5677667877 rounded to the nearest tenth (1 decimal place) = ?

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.

Our number is sitting on the axis of numbers between two 1 decimal place consecutive neighboring numbers:
5.5 < 5.5677667877 < 5.6


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: (5.5 + 5.6) ÷ 2 = 5.55


Our number, 5.5677667877, is larger than 5.55, so it is closer to the larger neighbor: 5.6


Except for 'To Ceiling, To Floor', the rounded off number (both the positive and the negative) will be equal only to this larger 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: 5.5677667877


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

The digit is 6: 5.5677667877 ≈ 5.6 rounded to the nearest tenth (1 decimal place).


Or, even simpler.
In any number rounded to decimal places, if the digit to the right of the 'rounding digit' is 5 (but it is not the last non-zero digit to the right) or more than 5, ie. 6, 7, 8 or 9, then increase the 'rounding digit' by 1 and drop all the digits to the right of it, 5 + 1 = 6:

5.5677667877 ≈ 5.6 rounded to the nearest tenth (1 decimal place)


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.
