Rounding liquid medication

I'm in nursing school and we are going over pediatric weight based dosage calculation for oral medications. I want to know if for pediatric medications greater than 1 ml you round to the nearest tenth and if the amount is less than 1ml you round to the nearest hundredth? Example order Tylenol 150mg PO for 10kg pediatric patient and on hand is Tylenol 160mg/5ml would you administer 4.7ml? Also does this rule apply to IV medications in pediatrics?
