al mayor centavo


Explanation:
DON'T take my word for it - this is what came into my head when I read the text and it's what I'd use but I have nothing to back it up.. I'm just going on my upbringing in Mexico and half of that is hidden memory that I can't rationalize. So wait and see if somebody concurrs. Good Luck!

Redondeado a la centena


Explanation:
Normalmente se utiliza la expresión "roud to the nearest cent" cuando se espera que el resultado del calculo al resolver el problema matemático sea fraccional, por lo tanto se pide que el resultado final sea redondeado a la centena mas cercana. (por ejemplo, si el resultado de calcular la mediana fue de 2.4685, lo que se está pidiendo es que se deje en 2.47)

Tambien si necesitas las traducciones a "Median", "Mode" y "Range", estas se traducirían como "Mediana", "Moda" y "Rango", por lo que asumo que tiene que calcular estos tres datos y redondear el resultado a la centena.


Ojala te sirva
