• This video makes it easier. BUT i'm still stuck on this subject! Do you have any advice? Thank you!!
• Heres some advice. lets round the number 0.5 . simple, right? well, you dont need to memorize any rhymes, etc. you just need to keep in mind that 5 rounds up , not down. and if you remember that, it should be easy to tell numbers 1 2 3 4 round down and numbers 5 6 7 8 9 round up :) i hope this helps

• Ok simple if you see 1234 on the first decimal point round down now 56789 on the first decimal point round up.Simple and vote me up.
