**What is 49 rounded to the nearest ten?**

Here we will tell you what 49 is rounded to the nearest ten and also show you what rules we used to get to the answer. First, 49 rounded to the nearest ten is:

**50**

Remember, we did not necessarily round up or down, but to the ten that is nearest to 49.

When rounding to the nearest ten, like we did with 49 above, we use the following rules:

A) We round the number up to the nearest ten if the last digit in the number is 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9.

B) We round the number down to the nearest ten if the last digit in the number is 1, 2, 3, or 4.

C) If the last digit is 0, then we do not have to do any rounding, because it is already to the ten.
