### 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.
 Q 1: 6 2/7 rounds down to (hint: 2 is less than half of 7, so 2/7<1/2)576 Q 2: 7 11/19 rounds up to (hint: 11 is more than half of 19, so 11/19 > 1/2)1098 Q 3: 5 7/14 rounds up to (hint: 7 is half of 14, so 7/14 = 1/2)576 Q 4: 12 6/7 rounds up to (hint: 6 is more than half of 7, so 6/7>1/2)121413 Q 5: 236 1/7 rounds down to (hint: 1 is less than half of 7, so 1/7<1/2)235236237 Q 6: 5 4/14 rounds down to (hint: 4 is less than half of 14, so 4/14 < 1/2)465 Q 7: 236 1/7 rounds down to 235236237 Q 8: 8 3/19 rounds down to (hint: 3 is less than half of 19, so 3/19 < 1/2)879 Question 9: This question is available to subscribers only!
