What is 152,909 rounded to the nearest hundred thousands

**Answer**

152,909 rounded to the nearest hundred thousands is 200,000.

Rules of rounding numbers

1) if the number being rounded off is followed by 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4, round the number down.

2) if the number being rounded off is followed by 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, round the number down.

1 is the number on the hundred thousands place.

It is followed by 5.

We round 1 up to 2.

Thus 2 is now in the hundred thousands place.
