**What is 15 rounded to the nearest ten?**

Here we will tell you what 15 is rounded to the nearest ten and also show you what rules we used to get to the answer.

Remember, we did not necessarily round up or down, but to the ten that is nearest to 15.

First, 15 rounded to the nearest ten is:

**20**

When rounding to the nearest ten, like we did with 15 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.

**What is 16 rounded to the nearest ten?**
