Math

A company estimates that the marginal cost (in dollars per item) of producing x items is . If the cost of producing one item is $531 find the cost of producing 100 items.

Please round the answer to the nearest hundredth.



Am I reading this wrong or would you not even have to round it to the nearest .0x?

$531 x 100 items = $53,100

I know if someone points out how I misread this, I will feel silly.
