Technically, when writing out a number with words, "and" should only be used to signify a decimal place, for example, "twenty-one and seventy-five hundredths" for 21.75. Thi…s means that for a number without a decimal point, no "and" should be used, and the correct number-word is "two thousand nine." That said, "two thousand and nine" is commonly used in casual spoken language. (MORE)

Nearest thousand, round down because 438 is less than 500. Answer - 6,172,000 Nearest ten thousand, round down because 2,438 is less than 5,000. Answer - 6,170,000

Either, $15,000. Or, $15000. The comma just makes it look neater, and is more generally accepted.

Rounded to the nearest thousand, this is equal to 68000. Rounded to the nearest ten thousand, this is equal to 70000.

I belive that 2465 rounded to the nearest thousands is 2000 thousand. If the second number is 5 and up, it would be 3000 thousand. But it is "4", so it is 2000 thousand.

hundred-thousands ten-thousands thousands hundreds tens ones Above is the order of the place values so for the number above it would go like this: 3 4 5 9 8 …2 hundred-thousands ten-thousands thousands hundreds tens ones To round to the nearest thousand means that we must decide what number should be in the thousands place (where the 5 currently is) and then make all numbers to the right of it (the hundreds, tens, and ones place) a 0. To determine what number should go in the thousands place, we need to look at the hundreds place. If the hundreds place contains a number that is greater than or equal to 5, we round up (meaning we add one to that value in the thousands place) otherwise, we round down (meaning we keep the number in the thousands place the same). In this problem, the hundreds place contains the number 9. Since this is greater than or equal to 5, we round up. To round up, we add 1 to the value in the thousands place. So, 5+1 = 6 --> Now the thousands place contains a six and all places to the right become zeros, so the final answer is: 346000 (MORE)

When rounding to a specific place, take a look at the digit immediately to the right of the target, in this case, the hundreds place. If that digit is 4 or less, zero ever…ything to the right of the target out. If that digit is 5 through 9, increase the target by one and zero everything to the right of it out. If the target is a 9, increasing it will turn it to zero and increase the digit to the left of the target by one. (MORE)

Since both are in units of thousands, disregard that- they are equal. You now have 100 and 680. Which one is larger?
