4  If the digit is 4 or lower, round down. 
5  Replace the ones place with zero. 
Let's practise understanding this method with a few examples.
Solving Rounding Problems to the Nearest Ten – Examples
Example 1:
Problem: Round 94 to the nearest ten.
Steps to Solve the Problem:
Step #  Action  Description 

1  Identify the number to be rounded.  94
