the house of flowers bought 72 flats of seedlings from their wholesaler. there were 96 seedlings per flat. what is the best estimate of the number of seedlings that the house of flowers bought? 6,000 7,000 7,500 or 12,500?

Since it is an estimate, round 72 to 70 and 96 to 100 and multiply. The answer would be 7,000.
