The answer to this problem is 4. I got the answer 4.4444444444444444444 so I rounded to the nearest whole number so I received 4.

I think the answer to this problem is 4 because you round down when you get 4.444444444444, but I think is uncorrect ma'm.

4*10^9
------
1.2 * 10^7

is
400 * 10^7
-----------
1.2 * 10^7

is
