Read the number below: 3576219. Which digit is in the ten thousands place? Round 3576219 to the nearest million.

The first part of the question asks us which digit is in the ten thousands place. If we start with the ones digit, we can work from right to left to identify the value of each digit. The nine is worth nine ones. The one is in the tens place. The two is in the hundreds place. The six is in the thousands place. And the seven is in the ten thousands place. The answer to the first part of the question is seven.

For the second part of the question, we need to round 3576219 to the nearest million. There’s a three in the millions place. And the number falls between 3000000 and 4000000. The halfway point between these two numbers is 3500000. Any number greater than 3500000 we would round to the next million, which is 4000000. Any number which is less than 3500000 we would round down to 3000000. 3576219 would go roughly here on the number line. It’s more than 3500000, so we need to round up to 4000000. So the answer to the second part of the question is 4000000.

We were asked around the number to the nearest million. So we look to the next digit, to the right, which is the hundred thousand digit. If this digit is five or more, we round up. The answers to the question are seven and 4000000. The digit in the ten thousands place is seven, and 3576219 rounded to the nearest million is 4000000.
