• 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
