Rounding decimals is similar to rounding whole numbers except that the digits to the right of the given place value are dropped instead of being replaced by zeroes.
Step 1: Identify the place you want to round
Step 2: Look at the digit to its right
Step 3: If that digit is 5 or greater, increase the rounding-place digit by 1. If that digit is less than 5, do not change the rounding place digit.
Step 4: Drop all the digits to the right.
