Locate the units digit. This is the red digit shown below \[\large 58{\color{red}1}.632\] The next digit is a 6, which is greater than 5. So add 1 to the red units digit to get 1+1=2. This is the new units digit. Finally, drop everything after the red one to complete the rounding. So \[\large 58{\color{red}1}.632\] becomes \[\large 58{\color{red}2}\]
