### MEAP Preparation - Grade 7 Mathematics1.9 Rounding Mixed Numbers to Nearest Whole Number

 Method: Look at the following mixed fractions. Approximate the fractional part to the nearest whole number. Add that to the whole number Note: In a mixed number 4 1/2 means 4 + 1/2 and not 4 x 1/2 Example: 4 3/4 - Round the fractional part. (Numerator) 3 is more than half of 4 (denominator), and hence greater than half of 4. 3/4 approximated as 1. Hence the mixed number is approximated as 4 + 1 = 5. Answer: 5 Directions: Round the following mixed numbers to nearest whole numbers. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
