6 To do the actual rounding, we use the following rule: RULE FOR ROUNDING WHOLE NUMBERS* Step 1. Underline the place to which you are rounding. Step 2. If the first digit to the right of the underlined place is 5 or more, add one to the underlined digit. Otherwise do not change the underlined digit. Step 3. Change all the digits to the right of the underlined digit to zeros. Thus, to round 78 to the nearest ten, we use the three steps given. Step 1. Underline the place to which we are rounding.
Estimate the answer: 340 ϩ 240 ϭ 580. 341 ϩ235 5 76 Step 2. Arrange in columns. Step 3. Add ones. Step 4. Add tens. Step 5. Add hundreds. The answer (576) is close to our estimate (580). Here is another problem: 56 ϩ 38 ϭ short form. Short Form 1 56 ϩ 38 94 . Compare the expanded form and the Expanded Form 50 ϩ 6 ϩ 30 ϩ 8 80 ϩ 14 ϭ 80 ϩ 10 ϩ 4 ︸ ︸ ϭ 90 ϩ 4 ϭ 94 Note that the 1 “carried” over to the tens column is really a 10. The 14 is rewritten as 10 ϩ 4. Here is another way of showing this: Answers to PROBLEMS 1.
