Question

Answer

Think the answer is 73.0

The original number is 72.953. The decimal point must not be moved when doing rounding.

To round to tenth of 72.953 means to round till the number “9” in 72.953 which is the number immediately on the right of the decimal point. To do the rounding, we have to look at the hundredth place which is number 5. For number 0-4, no change and for number 5-9 , we round up the tenth.

So in this case, we have to round up 9 and thus the number becomes 73.0. Note the answer must include the tenth place even the number is zero.
