Here we will tell you what 5942 is rounded to the nearest hundred and also show you what rules we use to get to the answer.

Remember, we do not necessarily round up or down, but to the hundred that is nearest to 5942.

When rounding a number such as 5942 to the nearest hundred, 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.

In this case, Rule B applies and 5942 rounded to the nearest hundred is:

**5900**
