Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So first off, do the multiplication as if there were no decimal points. What's the result?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Next, move the decimal point to the left one for each place that it was moved to the left in the first number. So 3.63 has the decimal point two places to the left. Then, you do the same thing with the second number. So 6.8 has it one place to the left, so you move the decimal point over a total of three places. What do you have then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. The number in the cents place is 8, specifically. Rounding to the nearest cent means you round the number in the cent spot based on what is to its right. Since 8 is in the cent spot, and 4 is to its right, what do you round the 8 to?
