Essential Question

How can you round numbers?
The general rules for the rounding of numbers are:
a. If the number you are rounding is followed by 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, round the number up.
Example:
38 rounded to the nearest ten is 40.
b. If the number you are rounding is followed by 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4, round the number down.
Example:
33 rounded to the nearest ten is 30.

In May 2008, the Mount Rushmore National Monument in South Dakota welcomed 138,202 visitors. A website reported that about 1 hundred thousand people visited the park during that month. Was the estimate reasonable?

• Underline what you are asked to find.
• Circle the information you will use.

An estimate tells you about how many or about how much. It is close to an exact amount. You can round a number to find an estimate.

One Way Use a number

To round a number to the nearest hundred thousand, find the hundred thousand it is between.  Use a number line to see which hundred thousand 138,202 is closest to 138,202 is closer to 150,000 than 100,000
Hence,
1 hundred thousand is not a reasonable estimate for 138,202.

Mathematical Process:
Is 155,000 closer to 100,000 or 200,000? Explain
The given number is: 155,000
Now,
We know that,
If the number you are rounding is followed by 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9, round the number up.
So,
155,000 should be close to 200,000 since 155 is close to 200 than 100
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
155,000 is closer to 200,000

Question 1.
What number is halfway between 100,000 and 200,000?
The given numbers are: 100,000 and 200,000
Now,
We know that,
The half of the 2 numbers = $$\frac{a + b}{2}$$
Where,
a and b are 2 numbers
So,
The half of 100,000 and 200,000 = $$\frac{100,000 + 200,000}{2}$$
= $$\frac{300,000}{2}$$
= 150,000
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
150,000 is halfway between 100,000 and 200,000

Question 2.
How does knowing where the halfway point helps you find which hundred thousand 138,202 is closest to? Explain.
The given number line is: Now,
From the above number line,
We can observe that
138,202 is closer to 150,000
Now,
We know that
150,000 is halfway of 100,000 and 200,000
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
138,202 is closer to the halfway point by using the number line

Another Way Use place value. Mount Rushmore is located 5,725 feet above sea level. About how high is Mount Rushmore above sea level, to the nearest thousand feet?

To round a number to the nearest thousand, find the thousands it is between.  Look at the digit in the place-value position to the right. Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
Mount Rushmore is about 6,000 feet above sea level.

Mathematical Process
Explain how you know 5,700 is closer to 6,000 than to 5,000.
We know that,
The half of the given numbers = $$\frac{a + b}{2}$$
So,
The halfway of 5,000 and 6,000 = $$\frac{5,000 + 6,000}{2}$$
= $$\frac{11,000}{2}$$
= 5,500
So,
5,700 > 5,500
So,
5,700 is closer to 6,000
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
5,700 is closer to 6,000 than 5,000 since the halfway of 5,000 and 6,000 is less than 5,700

Question 3.
What is 250,000 rounded to the nearest hundred thousand? Explain.
The given number is: 250,000
Now,
We know that,
If the number is greater than or equal to the halfway of the neasrest hundred thousand of the given number, then the given number is rounded to the latter number
Now,
The numbers that are closer to hundred thousand for 250,000 are: 200,000 and 300,000
So,
The halfway of 200,000 and 300,000 = $$\frac{200,000 + 300,000}{2}$$
= $$\frac{500,000}{2}$$
= 250,000
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
300,000 is the number that 250,000 is rounded to the nearest hundred thousand

Question 1.
Suppose 255,113 people live in a city. Rounded to the nearest hundred thousand, about how many people live in the city? Explain.
_____________ > 255,113 > _____________
The given number is: 255,113
Now,
We know that,
If the number is greater than or equal to the halfway of the neasrest hundred thousand of the given number, then the given number is rounded to the latter number
Now,
The numbers that are closer to hundred thousand for 255,113 are: 200,000 and 300,000
So,
The halfway of 200,000 and 300,000 = $$\frac{200,000 + 300,000}{2}$$
= $$\frac{500,000}{2}$$
= 250,000
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
The number of people live in the city is about 300,000 people
