Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because you have to round it off and we are getting 16.66% as after decimal we are having (.66) and for last 0.06 it should be rounded off to 0.66 approximately becomes 0.70 again 0.7 is greater than 0.5 so it should be rounded off to 1. so 16.66% approximately becomes 17%
