Round 0.9235733 to the nearest ten thousandth.

In order to do this, we need to know where the ten thousandths place is. So here we have our decimal. Let’s label every value. First, we have the ones unit. It’s the whole number.

Now with a decimal, this is where we really need to pay attention because we need to round to the nearest ten thousandths place. So the nine is in the tenths place. The two is in the hundredths place. The three is in the thousandths place. And five is in the ten thousandths place. And we’re supposed to round to the nearest ten thousandth place.

And in order to do so, we need to look at the number directly to the right of that, the seven. If this number is greater than or equal to five, we round up. If it is less than five, we round down. And seven is greater than five, so we need to round our five up. So we will round it up to a six, giving us a final answer of 0.9236.
