is closer to 30 when compared to 40. To round off larger numbers there are three steps.

Step 1: Observe the place which is to be rounded.

Step 2: If the next digit is < 5 then it remains the same.

Step 3: If the next digit is ≥ 5 then increase it by 1.

(a) Round off the number to the nearest tens place

(b) Round off the number to the nearest hundreds place

Answer:

(a) Here the tens place is 4.

The number after tens place is 8 (which is > 5). So add 1 to 4. 4 + 1 = 5

Round off the number to the nearest tens place = 176,250

(b) Here the hundreds place is 2

The number after hundreds place is 4 (which is < 5). So 2 remain the same.

Round off the number to the nearest hundreds place = 176,200
