Sorry, combined 2 separate questions :(

That is the answer that I got, but my answer is not an option. The answers I have to choose from is 130 turtles, 150 turtles, 120 turtles and 110 turtles.

Your instructions are to use front-end estimation. The only possible answer is 130.

Note that the actual answer is 135 which rounds to 140.

• Math - correction (typo) - ,

The only possible answer is 140.
