ROUNDING: look at the next digit and make the decision based on “Is it 5 or higher?”
35,353,535 round to the nearest million is 35,000,000
35,353,535 round to the nearest thousand is 35,354,000
2,100 round to the nearest hundred is still 2,100
>>> 199,999 round to the nearest hundred is 200,000 <<< !!!

ESTIMATING ARITHMETIC BY USING ROUNDING AND NO CALCULATOR: Round each number to a single digit
followed by zeros. Do the arithmetic without a calculator because that’s the whole point of estimating!
488 + 735
round to 500 + 700, answer 1,200 (actual 1,233)
488 + 1,572
round to 500 + 2000, answer 2,500 (actual 2,060)
6,397 – 4,800 round to 6,000 – 5,000, answer 1,000 (actual 1,597)
278 × 537
round to 300 × 500, answer 150,000 (actual 149,286)
Note: 3 × 5 is 15, and count the zeros, we have four zeros, so take 15 and tack on four zeros to get the 150,000
