Question:

Sherri was doing a calculation and came up with 59.68287 as her answer. If Sherri rounds to the nearest hundredth, what will her answer be?

A 59.68
Explaination

First, eliminate answer choices 59.7 and 59.6 since neither of these answer choices is rounded to the nearest hundredth. To round 59.68287 to the nearest hundredth, you need to look at the digit in the thousandths place. The digit is 2. Rounding tells you that if a digit is 4 or under, round down. Thus, we need to leave the digit in the hundredths place as an 8. The correct answer is 59.68.
