If you rounded the numbers with fractions, you'd get 13.

Oh because what I did was divide 3/4 and I got .75 and then I divided 4/5 and got 80. Then I added 6.00 .75 and .80 and got 7.55. But then I didnt know what to do with the whole number. So how do you figure out you were suppose to round?

I used the rounding example as a way of showing how far off your answer is.

2.75 + 6 + 3.8 = ?
