Homework Help: Math

Posted by Norma on Tuesday, May 15, 2007 at 10:44pm.

I don't get this on if someone can explain it to me

Estimate 121% of 600

1.21 times 600 would be the exact figure

ok I get 726

I forgot to put the choices here they are..

A) 75
B) 750
C) 72
D) 720
and what i got is not in those choices so what am I doing wrong

you were supposed to "estimate" 121% of 600

121% of something is that something increased by appr 20%

10% of 600 is 60, then 20% of 600 is 120
so the 600 was increased by appr 120 to get appr 720, which was one of the choices.

Thank you now I get it thank you again for your help
