It took Steve and his construction crew 8 months to build a house. Alfter expenses, he was left with $24,872.67 himself. on average, how much did Steve make per month? Round to the nearest dollar.

$24,872.67 / 8 = ?

I know that the answer is: 3,109.08
but what do I have to do with the rounding to the nearest dollar after get the answer 
Is $9.08 closer to nine dollars or ten dollars?

$9 dollars

3,109 is the appropriate answer

$9 dollars cause 9.08 is closer to 9

I am stumped
