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
