If it 5 or greater you round up if it is less than 5 that is 4 or lower you round down. When you round to the nearest 100 the numbers in the tens and one's places become zero, so 153 when rounded off to the nearest 100 will become 200. Similarly, 175 rounds off to 200, 871 to 900 and 963 to 1000. So, this was simple, you look at the number to the right of hundreds place, which is the tens number, if it higher than 5 rounds up and change the tens and one’s number to zero.
