    Truncated means had the top cut off. For example, a truncated cone is a cone with the top cut off.

    Truncate in math is when u have a number with either decimals or no decimals and u chop it to make it shorter or more presentable. The example above, 12.689 can be truncated in anyway the question asked u to. E.g. Truncate 12.689 by (1d.p.). Instead of rounding like normal, 12.7. We truncate it to 12.6. Whenever you truncate, you do not round like how you would round normally in rounding. You just simply get rid of the numbers behind.
