**Susan**, Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 8:14pmThat 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.

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 8:21pmYour answer choices are wrong.

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.

Please talk with your teacher about this faulty question.

- Math - correction (typo) -
