# Rounding Integers

Integers are rounded in exactly the same way as whole numbers are rounded, because negative sign (minus sign) doesn't influence process of rounding.

So, we just go through a couple of examples.

**Example 1.** Round -456 to the nearest ten.

Since last digit is greater or equal then 5 (it is 6), then we round up: 56 becomes 60.

**Answer: -460.**

Next example.

**Example 2.** Round -45678 to the nearest thousand.

Since last three digits (678) form a number that is greater then 500, then we round up: 5678 becomes 6000.

**Answer: -46000.**

Last example.

**Example 3**. Round -486 to the nearest hundred.

Since last two digits form a number that is greater than 50 (it is 86), then we round up.

**Answer: -500.**

Now, take a pen and paper and solve following problems.

**Exercise 1**. Round -156 to the nearest ten.

**Answer: -160.**

Next exercise.

**Exercise 2.** Round -456748 to the nearest ten.

**Answer: -456750.**

Next exercise.

**Exercise 3**. Round -13456 to the nearest hundred.

**Answer: -13500.**
