# Rounding off to the nearest 100 | Maths

## Rounding off to the nearest 100 ( Hundreds )

In order to rounding off to the nearest 100 we will first check if the tens digit is greater than or lesser than 5

If the ten’s digit is greater than 5, we will increase hundreds digit by 1 and replace tens or ones digit by 0.

If the ten’s digit is lesser than 5, we will replace tens or ones digit by 0, and other digits remain same.
