How do you round 4.495?

I ve been doing textbook work and more than once this issue has showed up, and it s been stumping me for years if I m being honest. If we re rounding it to the nearest whole number, the 5 at the end changes the 9 to a 0 which bumps up the 4 to a 5, thus allowing us to round the 4.495 to 5. Is this a correct method?... show more I ve been doing textbook work and more than once this issue has showed up, and it s been stumping me for years if I m being honest.

Or do I just look at one digit. Thanks.
