How do you round 0.4062 to the nearest hundredth?

See explanation

##0.4062##
Write as ##4/10+0/100+6/1000+2/10000##
##color(red)(” “color(white)(2/2)uarr)##
##color(red)(” hundredths”)##
The number to the right of the 100th place is 6 which is bigger than or equal to 5 so we round up.
This means that instead of ##0.4062## we have ##0.41##
The 0 has increased by 1.
All the digits to the right of the red arrow are discarded leaving just ##0.41##
