    52 if the decimal is 5 or greater then you round up

    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

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

    so 51.54 needs to be rounded UP.

    51.54 becomes 52

    52, is the answer because 0.54 is closer to 1 than 0.
