How to round numbers?
Rounding is a method to simplify a number by reducing its digits while keeping its approximate value close to the original value.
There are a few common ways to round:

 Round to a set number of decimal places, rounding 2.13579 to 2 decimal places gives 2.14.
 Round up or down to the nearest integer, rounding up 2.3 gives 3. Rounding down 2.3 gives 2.
 Round to a set increment, rounding to the nearest 10 rounds 17 to 20.
 Round to significant figures, rounding 2.333 to 3 significant figures gives 2.33.
When rounding, look at the first digit after where you want to round. If it's 5 or more, round up. If less than 5, round down. Rounding makes numbers cleaner and easier to work with in many everyday situations, however, they may also cause rounding errors like rounded values can compound errors. Rounding measurements and constants may reduces precision. It is better to round numbers after performing calculations than before.
What is a decimal place?
A decimal place refers to each position held by a digit in a number. The first decimal place is the tenths place (1/10), the second is the hundreds place (1/100) and so on.
What is an integer?
An integer is a whole number that can be positive, negative, or zero, but not a fraction or decimal.
What is a "a set increment"?
A "set increment" is a fixed regular number interval that is used as the rounding value or unit.
 Rounding to the nearest 10 uses a set increment of 10. Valid rounded values are ..., 20, 10, 0, 10, 20, 30, ...
 Rounding to the nearest 0.5 uses a set increment of 0.5. Valid values are ..., 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, ...
