1,350 - 1,000 - 1,400 - 1,350

8,999 - 9,000 - 9,000 - 9,000

5,501 - 6,000 - 5,500 - 5,500

Unless part of the instructions are missing this is basic math.

if they say round up, go up. if they say round down, go down. If the say the nearest, well go to the one its closest to.

Depends. If there is nothing behind the five then it rounds to the even one. Or at least thats how it was in one class I took.

No having sh*tty math teachers in HS until you get to calc senior year sucks. Right now I am in college algebra and its tough, but I can help my roommate with his calc half of the time.

Yeah, my algebra is decent, but I'm going to an engineering school so the placement tests are worse than big black guys in prison. If i were going to Mizzou or another huge school for a business/party degree I would be in clac 1 or 2 if I even needed math at all. For EE I figured it is better to start lower and get everything down perfectly before going for the harder stuff.
