52

when rounding, we look at the digit after the place value that we are rounding to

so in 51.54, we are rounding the one's digit because the is the closest whole number. when it's is 5 or over, we round up and 4 and lower we round down

so final answer: 52

Separate the whole number portion of that decimal:

51.|54

Look at the first digit after the decimal point:

51.|54

..... ^

Since it is 5 or higher, we are going to round *up* so increment the whole number and drop the rest.

52

Answer:

52

I assume you mean round 51.54 to the nearest whole number.

It rounds up to 52.

Because it's 0.54 that's just more than 0.5

so 51.54 needs to be rounded UP.

51.54 becomes 52
