I don't even understand this im no good at math what so ever. so rounding is something that is hard to me. same with the rest of the questions.

multiplied 
vanessa,
so what do I do to round or how do I round?

Ms. Sue,
Yes. 4.23 is rounded to two decimal places. You have two numbers after (to the right of) the decimal point.
