Welcome to this, the second of our Medium level Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Rounding Numbers. If you’ve played our previous quizzes then you should be quite familiar with rounding numbers by now. In this quiz we’ll test you on rounding decimals and ten thousands, along with some easier questions.

Rounding (whether decimals or whole numbers) is all about finding the closest unit, ten, hundred, thousand or ten thousand. Is the number you want to round closer to the higher value or the lower one? If it’s the higher value then round up – if it’s the lower value then round down.

One more thing – remember this rule: 0.5s, 5s, 50s, 500s and 5,000s are rounded UP, not DOWN.

And now the quiz. Make sure you read each question properly before you pick your answer. We don’t want to get our tens and hundreds mixed up now do we?
