Then they commented that the statement '4567.89 rounded equals 4567.9' was incorrect.

To put this in context this was the text that I sent home:

**Your maths mission for this week is to practise and improve your skills at rounding numbers to the nearest 1, 10, 100, or 1000.**

Remember, when using whole numbers, look at the units. If the unit value equals 0 or 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 (less than 5) then round down:

72 rounded equals 70 because the 2 units is less than 5

654 rounded equals 650 because the 4 units is less than 5

9753 rounded equals 9750 because the 3 units is less than 5

If the unit value equals 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9 (more than 4) then round up:

56 rounded equals 60 because the 6 units is more than 4

345 rounded equals 350 because the 5 units is more than 4

4567 rounded equals 4570 because the 7 units is more than 4

If you want a challenge then use four digit whole numbers with two decimal places.

4567.89 rounded equals 4567.9 then 4568.0

9876.54 rounded equals 9876.50 then 9877.0
