Find the cost of 999 kw-hr at 7.3 cents per kw-hr.

• Math -

999 kw-hr x 0.073/kw-hr = ?

• Math -

72.927 kw-hr. Am I right DrBob222? but do I have to round off 72.927 to the nearest cents?

• Math -

Yes. It rounds to \$72.93.

• Math -

yes, that is right! Because I kept rereading my math book and i found out it says to round off to the nearest ten cents. Thank You DrBob222!

• Math -

If you are to round to the nearest 10 cents, then I would round to \$72.90.

• Math -

Nevermind, because 9 8s bigger than 3 of course so it round down to 90 cents.

• Math -

No, it rounds down to 90 cents because 3 is less than 5. 93 is closer to 90 than to 100.
