For rounding, what does it mean to round each number to the greatest place of the least number?

I‘m trying to help my 5th grader do math and the teacher says go to the book for help and the book says round each number to the greatest place of the least number.
  1. 4284+979+5610 I would say that is 4280+980+5610. That’s how I read into it but what I want to put is 4300+900+5600
