#### Explanation:

The digit of 4 is the hundreds so the cut off is to the right of it.

If the digit to the right of the cut of point is greater than or equal to 5 then we increase the digit to the left by 1.

Then all the digits to the right become zero

If the digit to the right of the cut off point is less than 5 then the digit to the left is not changed.

Then all the digits to the right become zero.
