I need help with this question:
Estimate the product by rounding to
the nearest one
6.38 times 18.716
I said on my assignment 120 and my
teacher marked it wrong. She said it's
114, and I donot see how it's 114.
Any input, would certainly be welcome.
By rounding to the nearest 1, you are multiplying 6 x 19. That product is 114.
Before multiplying first round the numbers. It would be 6x19 then the answer comes out to be 114.
