Solve the problem. Round to the nearest unit.

584 is 12.2% of what?

I got 47.868852459016 (on the calculator) Just wanted to know if I rounded to the nearest unit correctly. When I rounded I got 4787?

47.87, I think you mean. Doesn't nearest unit mean to round to the nearest whole number though? (48)
