Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What level of math are you in? That could determine what are considered 'compatible mumbers'. The problem could be easily enough estimated by rounding to the nearest whole number and dividing 706 by 10, but if they want a whole number for an answer you have a different issue.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well... You could get a whole number answer by rounding 706.3 all the way up to 710, but that would mean adding almost 4, whereas you just added .1 to the 9.9 term. It would, however, give you a whole number answer.
