When you are rounding a number to the nearest hundredth, it means that you want two decimals.|
Enter a number of your choice in the box below and press the enter/return key on your keyboard to see it rounded to the nearest hundredth.
How do we round to the nearest hundredth? Basically, we look at your number's 3rd decimal and make minor changes.
If the 3rd decimal is 5 or higher, then we increase your second decimal by 1 and chop off the rest of the decimals leaving only two.
However, if the 3rd decimal is 4 or lower, then the second decimal remains the same and we simply chop off your extra decimals.
Also, if the number you enter is an integer, then we add a decimal and two 0s to make it rounded to the nearest hundredth.
