Round 80,531 to the nearest thousand.

We could use a number line to help us solve this problem. For us to be able to round 80,531 to the nearest thousand, we need to know what the two multiples of a thousand either side of this number are. To help us, we can start by looking at the thousands digit itself. In this number, it’s a zero. This tells us that our number comes somewhere between 80,000 and 81,000. One of these numbers is going to be our answer, but which one?

Before we continue, let’s mark the halfway point on our number line. Halfway is 80,500. Now, to work out where our number belongs on this number line and whether to round it up or down, we need to look at the digit to the right of the thousands digit. The hundreds digit is a five. Our number is eighty thousand five hundred and something. This means we could say it’s about here on our number line, just past halfway. We can see we’re going to need to round it up to the nearest thousand. 80,531 rounded to the nearest thousand is 81,000.
