3400/90% = 3777

round to nearest 100 so answer is:

3700

The nearest hundred would actually be 3800. But the answer is completely wrong.

3400 x .9 = 3060.

Nearest hundred is 3100.

thanks for the correction the answer is 3800 otherwise that makes no sense. the question is asking for how many amphibians there are in the world and the 3400 represents 90% of all amphibians in the world. The answer can not be less then 3400 since thats not even logical.
