Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:The rounded number is 0.06006 to the hundred-thousandths place.Step-by-step explanation:Consider the provided number.0.0600609Here we need to round the number to the nearest hundred-thousandths.Rounding to the hundred-thousandths means that there should be maximum 5 digits after the decimal point.Here, the provided number 0.0600609 contains 7 digit after the decimal point and we want only 5 digits after decimal. So we will remove the last 3 digit.For this we need to round the number to the nearest hundred thousands place.The rule of rounding a number is: If 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 follow the number, then no need to change the rounding digit. If 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 follow the number, then rounding digit rounds up by one number.The 6th digit after the decimal is 0, so there is no need to change the rounding digit.So, the rounded number is 0.06006 to the hundred-thousandths place.
