    Refer to my previous answer. Replace x with 12, as there are 12 months in a year.

    244 would be the closest whole number

    Yeah but when you have say 255.4 people in statistics, you round up despite it being closer to 255. And the difficulty of the question doesn't appear that this would matter either way.
