I have a simple question but am having a hard time understanding the explanation of an unreasonable answer. Any help would be helpful.

The question is, an auditorium holds 137 students but is only 60% full. How many students are in the auditorium? The answer is 82.2 obviously it is unreasonable to have 82.2 students. How can I make this reasonable. Thanks

just round

2 is less than 5 so it would be 82 students
