**5/8 Rounded to the Nearest Whole Number**

Here we will show you step-by-step how to get the solution to: "What is 5/8 rounded to the nearest whole number?"

First, we convert the fraction to a decimal number by dividing the numerator by the denominator:

5 / 8 = 0.6

Then, we round to the nearest whole number using the following rules:

If the number to the right of the decimal point is .5 or higher, then add 1 to the left of the decimal point.

If the number to the right of the decimal point is less than .5, then leave the number to the left of the decimal point as is and remove the digit to the right of the decimal point.

.4 is less than .5. Thus, we leave the number to the left of the decimal point as is and remove the digit to the right of the decimal point.

5/8 rounded to the nearest whole number is therefore:
