**What is 59 rounded to the nearest hundred?**

Here we will tell you what 59 is rounded to the nearest hundred and also show you what rules we used to get to the answer. First, 59 rounded to the nearest hundred is:

**100**

Remember, we did not necessarily round up or down, but to the hundred that is nearest to 59.

When rounding to the nearest hundred, like we did with 59 above, we use the following rules:

A) We round the number up to the nearest hundred if the last two digits in the number are 50 or above.

B) We round the number down to the nearest hundred if the last two digits in the number are 49 or below.

C) If the last two digits are 00, then we do not have to do any rounding, because it is already to the hundred.

**What is 60 rounded to the nearest hundred?**

Now you know what 59 rounded to the nearest hundred is. Go here for the next number we rounded.
