What does round off 3,258 to the nearest ten,hundred ,and thousand mean.

  • math -

    First you need to understand place values.

    8 is in the ones place
    5 is in the tens place
    2 is in the hundreds place
    3 is in the thousands place

    To round to the nearest ten, look at the number to the right. If it's 5 or more, you round up.

    So 3,258 rounded to the nearest 10 is 3,260
