  1. Find the "thousands" place
    1. Start from the digit at the far right.  That is the "ones" place
    2. Next digit to the left.  That is the "tens" place
    3. Next digit to the left.  That is the "hundreds" place
    4. Next digit to the left.  That is the "thousands" place
    5. *In this case, the "thousands" place is "3"
  2. Look at the digit to the right of the "thousands" place (this would be the "hundreds" place).  *In this case, that digit is "9"
  3. If the digit is "5" or higher, then the "thousands" place would round up.  If the digit is lower than "5", then the "thousands" place would round down.  *In this case, "9" is larger than "5", so you will round the "thousands" place up from "3" to "4".
  4. Keep the digits to the left of the "thousands" place, use the "rounded thousands" digit, and finish the number with zeros.  *In this case, the answer is 284,000.

966 rounded to closest thousand is 1000 and in addition there aer 283,000 already in the number. Hence answer will be 283000+1000 = 284000
