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.
