Is 5.4967 closer to 5.49 or 5.5

2 Answer

Answer:

5.5

Step-by-step explanation:

When rounding, if the decimals or whatever your rounding are 5 or higher, you round up. Lower than 5 (4, 3, 2, 1) you round down. We're focusing on the thousands and ten thousands place numbers here (the 0.67 in the decimal.) as we're rounding between 5.49 and 5.5.

.67 is equal to or HIGHER than .50 obviously; so your answer is 5.5.

Hope this helps and have a nice day!
