    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 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) -

    The only possible answer is 140.
