(iii) 86943; ten thousand
(iv) 50,81,739; lakh
(v) 33,75,98,482; Ten crore
Solution:
(i) We have to round off 4065 to hundreds
The place value is a hundred
The digit in hundreds place is 0
The digit to the right is 6 > 5
Adding 1 to 0 ⇒ 0 + 1 = 1
Changing the digits to the right of 41 to zeros
4065 $$\simeq$$ 4100 ⇒ 4100

(ii) To round off 44555 to thousands
The digit in the thousands place is 4
digit to the right is 5 = 5.
Adding 1 to the thousand place value digit 4 ⇒ 4 + 1 = 5
Changing the digits to the right of 45 to zeros we get 45000
44555 $$\simeq$$ 45000

(iii) To round off 86,943 to ten thousand
The digit in ten thousand places is 8
The digit to the right is 6 > 5
Adding 1 to 8 ⇒ 8 + 1 = 9.
Changing the digits to the right of 9 to zeroes we get 90,000
86943 $$\simeq$$ 90,000

(iv) To round off 5081739 to lakhs
The digit in the lakhs place is 0
The digit to the right is 8 > 5
Adding 1 to 0 ⇒ 1 + 0 = 1
Changing the digits right off 51 to zeros
We get 51,00,000
5081739 $$\simeq$$ 51,00,000

(v) To round off 337598482 to ten crore
The digit in the ten crores place is 3
The digit to the right is 3 < 0
The digit in ten crore place remains the same 3.
Changing the digit to the right of 3 zeros we get 30,00,00,000
33,75,98,482 $$\simeq$$ 30,00,00,000

Question 6.
The population of a city was 43,43,645 in the year 2001 and 46,81,087 in the year 2011. Estimate the increase in population by rounding off to the nearest thousand.
Solution:

Population in 2011 = 46,81,087
Increase in population = 46,81,087 – 43,43,645 = 3,37,442
When rounded off to the nearest thousand = 3,37,000
