Q. 9

# The greatest number which on rounding off to nearest thousands gives 5000, is

A. 5001

B. 5559

C. 5999

D. 5499

Answer :

To round off a number to nearest thousands,

If the number at hundred place is 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 we round down

If the number at hundred place is 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 we round up.

5, __0__01 on rounding off to nearest thousands gives 5000

(since at hundred place is 0)

5, __5__59 on rounding off to nearest thousands gives 6000

(since at hundred place is 5)

5, __9__99 on rounding off to nearest thousands gives 6000

(since at hundred place is 9)

5, __4__99 on rounding off to nearest thousands gives 5000

(since at hundred place is 4)

Thus the number which rounds off to 5000 and is the largest is 1 less than 5000

= 5000-1

= 5499
