Rounding Numbers

Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

(Leviticus 19:36) KJV

Some people, in particular atheist science trolls (ASTs), claim that there’s incorrect math in the Bible are using incorrect math: They’ve forgotten the basic principle of rounding numbers.

Rounding means making a number simpler but keeping its value close to what it was. The result is less accurate, but easier to use.

Example: 73 rounded to the nearest ten is 70, because 73 is closer to 70 than to 80. But 76 goes up to 80.
