Round 6266 centimetres to the nearest metre.

The first thing we recognise is that we’re taking centimetres and converting them to metres. We know that it takes 100 centimetres to equal one metre. We can use that information to help us determine how many metres 6266 centimetres is.

To move from centimetres to metres, we divide by 100. We need to divide 6266 by 100. We can do that by moving the decimal place two times to the left: one, two. 6266 centimetres equals 62.66 metres.

And it’s asking us to round this to the nearest metre. We need to round 62.66 metres. The nearest metre means rounding to the nearest whole number, rounding in the units place. We currently have a two in the ones place. We look to the right, to the unit in the tens place, to help us determine how to round. We have a six in the tens place. Six is greater than five. Therefore, we round up.

The two in the ones place becomes a three. Everything to the left of the two stays the same, and everything to the right of the units place becomes a zero. 62.66 rounded to the nearest metre is 63. We no longer need the decimal and the zeros after it. 6266 centimetres rounded to the nearest metre equals 63 metres.
