Invoking riots and breaking silences at the sight of a bigot at work The N Word by YC The Cynic

Channeling the imagery of riots and demonstrations, YC displays what seems to inspire African Americans to act out in protest. The idea of Civil Rights protests was based off the idea of gaining rights they were denied or not given equally. However, a bigot, someone who has a barbaric view of races and equality, seems to inspire these riots just as well, if not better. For as the first lines of each verse say:

People that fought, but what were they fighting for?
All of our rights ignored, or rights to a word?

The bigots of the world have distracted those searching for equality from their goals. Instead, their new goal has almost became a police against discrimination.

What is 1/3 rounded to the nearest thousandth? Rounding Decimals (Exercises) by Math Genius

Before we solve this rounding problem, we must first know that one divided by three is.

Luckily, (1/3) is a very well known fraction with a very simple and easy to find answer as well:

(1/3) = 0.3333333333….

The threes continue on forever, but for this problem we’re only concerned with the first four decimal places. Three is the number in the thousandths spot, as well as every other decimal spot:

0.3333333333…

The number in the ten-thousandths spot is also a three, and therefore the number is not rounded up to a four, making:

1/3 rounded to the nearest thousandth equal to 0.333.

Round 6.14989 to the nearest tenth. Rounding Decimals (Exercises) by Math Genius

The first decimal spot is the tenths spot, making the number in that place 1:

6.14989

The next decimal after the tenths spot is a 4, and numbers less than five are rounded back down. Even though the numbers after the four are high, the only spot that matters in rounding to the tenths is the hundredths, which is a four. Which makes:

6.14989 rounded to the nearest tenth equal to 6.1.

Round 3.74 to the nearest whole number. Rounding Decimals (Exercises) by Math Genius

Rounding whole numbers to the nearest digit works the exact same way as decimals!

First look at the digit in front of three, the seven:

  • 3.74

Seven is greater than five, which means we round up, because 3.74 is closer to four than three, making:

3.74 Rounded to the nearest whole number equal to 4.

Round 4.237 to the nearest hundredth. Rounding Decimals (Exercises) by Math Genius

Three is currently the number in place of the hundredths spot:

  • 4.237

Using the rules of decimal rounding we look at the decimal to the right, in the thousandths place. There is a seven in the thousandths place, and since numbers that contain a five or above in the space to the right are rounded up, it makes:

4.237 rounded to the nearest hundredth equal 4.24.

Rounding takes those large and unsightly strings of decimals and makes them into short and sweet, and in our opinion much more attractive, answers! Rounding Decimals by Math Genius

0.623 is rounded to 0.62 Rounding Decimals by Math Genius

The same way as above, 0.623 is only three thousandths away from 0.62. But 0.623 is seven thousandths away from being 0.63, making 0.62 a more accurate estimation.

Decimals that end in a five or higher (5, 6, 7, 8, 9) are rounded up to the next whole number, therefore:

0.437 is rounded to 0.44
Rounding Decimals by Math Genius

Numbers that end in a five or higher are rounded up due to the accuracy of the estimation of an answer.

  • 0.437 is only three thousandths away from being 0.44.

  • 0.437 is seven thousandths away from being 0.43.

With that in mind, round 0.437 to 0.44 ensures that not only the answer is shorter, but that your final answer is as accurate as possible.

This is most commonly seen in, once again, the term Pi. Pi’s first few digits are as such:

Pi = 3.14159265359

Many schools teach Pi as being equal to 3.14, this is due to the fact that the decimal past 3.14 is one, and makes the numbers after it so small that 3.14 becomes a fairly close estimate of an infinite number.
