Hii

You have asked regarding rounding to nearest tens, hundred for 1234.1234 on both LHS and RHS of decimal.

First of all , Lets know what does the place signify:

we denote the digits as units, tens, hundreds, thousands before decimal and tenth, hundredth after decimal. see the sketch

Rounding

Simplifying a number to a certain place value. Drop the extra decimal places, and

if the first dropped digit is 5 or greater, round up the last digit that you keep. If the

first dropped digit is 4 or smaller, round down (keep the same) the last digit that you keep.

It means if we round 47 to nearest ten = 50

whereas, 44 to nearest ten = 40

Now lets come to your question:

1234.1234

Rounding to nearest ten = 1230

Rounding to nearest hundred = 1200

Rounding to nearest tenth =1234.1

Rounding to nearest hundredth= 1234.12

I hope it is clear now. Fell free to tag again.
