2 Rounding

Why might you want to round numbers? You may wish to estimate the answer to a calculation or to use a guide rather than work out the exact total. Alternatively, you might wish to round an answer to an exact calculation so that it fits a given purpose, for example an answer involving money cannot have more than 2 digits after the decimal point. You will now explore each of these examples in more detail and practise your rounding skills in context.
