To round a number to the nearest hundredth, first take a look at
the thousandths place (the third place to the right of the decimal)
and determine if the digit is greater than or less than 4. If the
digit is greater than 4, increase the hundredths place digit by one
and drop the thousandths place digits and/or all other numbers
behind it. If the digit is less than four, simply drop the
thousandths place digits and/or all other numbers behind it. Now
let's take a look at 8.413. The digit in the thousandths place is
3. 3 is less than four. So drop the 3 and leave the rest of the
numbers before it. The answer is **8.41**.
