{Decimals}
Hi, I'm stuck on these problems, and I asked my family members, they don't know, so I've come to you, community! Please help, thanks.
Directions:
Round each decimal to the underlined placevalue position.
4.2974
(seven is the underlined number)
39.987
(nine is the underlined number.)
0.085
(zero is the underlined number)
Thanks, just three questions from my homework and hopefully I can manage the rest of it.

4.2974 = 4.297
39.987 = 40.0
0.085 = 0.1

If the number on the right side is lower than 5 then the (underlined) number stays the same and if the number on the right is 5 or higher then the underlined number goes up one

Hi. I'm in 7th grade too. Look to the right of the underlined number. Determine if it is between 04 or 59. If it is in the category 04 keep the number the same.
If it's in between 5 and 9, round it up to the next number in the number line. EX: 2.15 underlined is 1...you would round it to 2.2 I hope this helps!
