To estimate how many more people live in Atherton than Needles, which is closer to exact answer: rounding to hundreds or thousands? Explain.
Artherto 7,127
Needles 5,346

its better to round to the hundreds because if you round to the thousands, it would be really far away from the real answer. for example, if you round 7,127 to the thousands place, it would be 7,000. but if you round it to the hundreds place, it would be 7,100 which is closer to 7,127 than to 7,000.

I am cooler then
