# Round to the Nearest Tenth Calculator

Just when you thought rounding numbers was difficult, we came up with the solution to create a **round to the nearest tenth calculator**, and that's not the only one. We have plenty more, but for now, we will talk about:

- What does the nearest tenth mean; and
- How to round to the nearest tenth; you will be able to do it at your fingertips. It's that easy.

## Round to tenth — meaning

Well, if you are here out of curiosity, then you might be wondering, * what does it even mean to round to the nearest tenth?* Or maybe one of your students asked you, "what the nearest tenth means?" while you were talking about rounding to ten.

In decimal numbers, **the tenth place in the place value system is the one right after the decimal point**. So, rounding to the nearest tenth means rounding up or down the number at the *tenths* position, using the number at the hundredth, which is the one right after the tenth.

It also means that the rounding rules apply as usual. You round up a number if it is greater than 4. Otherwise, you round down.

For instance, the number $21.75$ **rounded to the nearest tenth** is $21.8$.

The number $72.33$ **rounded to the nearest tenth** is $72.3$.

This is how to round to the nearest tenth. *And this is precisely what our round to the nearest tenth calculator will do for you*.

## Using our round to the nearest tenth calculator

So to start with the tool, the first thing that you need to do is:

**Input the decimal number**which you want to round to its nearest tenth;- And that's it. That's the only thing that you need to do. The rest is up to the tool: it will display the rounded number.

For instance, if you enter $88.56$ it will use the number at the hundredth position, which is $6$, to round the number at the tenth position, which is $5$ so the answer will be $\bold {88.6}$.

The rounding-off rules that we studied in elementary are applied here exactly. That is, **if a number is greater than $4$ you add $1$ to the next digit while rounding up**.
