it would be 13.2 because you just use the hundreths place which is another 2 and tells you to leave it the same

Hi,
If you look at the screen you will notice that it is limited. It can only display a certain number of symbols (numbers, letters, signs). Furthermore, its memory capacity is also limited. Being just a calculator, it can only give you approximate values. However, even if it can display 10 decimal digits only, it is performing calculations with 12 to 15 digits. The precision it is giving is more than your problem has in the first place. How precise are the numbers you are entering? In science one talks about significant digits. Digits that really mean something.

What, pray tell, do you need the others (how many) for? Are you worried about losing precision? At this level of precision, you can enter any number of arbitrary digits you want after the result calculated. It will not make the slightest bit of a difference (1 in 10 billion).

If you have a problem with too many zeros before the actual significant digits, use the scientific display format or the engineering display format. But I do not think it is the problem, because the calculator automatically reverts to scientific notation if the numbers are too small ot too large.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa and for rating this solution.

### How do you round 5,403.264 to the nearest hundred

Assuming you do mean to the nearest hundred, answer the question 'is this number closer to 5400 or 5500?' It is closer to 5400 (The first digit to the left of the decimal point is 'ones', the second place is 'tens', the third place is 'hundreds', so you look at the third digit to the left to round to the nearest hundred)
If, in fact, you meant hundredth, answer the question 'is it closer to 5403.26 or 5403.27?' It is closer to 5403.26 (The first digit to the right of the decimal point is 'tenths', the second digit is 'hundredths', so you look at the second digit to the right to round to the nearest hundredth)
