Which situation describes a time when it would be all right to round the numbers? A. Taylor's pattern calls for a piece of material that is 10.4 yards long and another that is 3.25 yards long. She thinks of rounding the lengths to the nearest yard She would cut the pieces 10 yd and 3 yd B Angelo wants to buy a sandwich for $5.75 and another sandwich for $5.50 The cashier thinks of rounding both numbers to the nearest dollar She would charge $6 for each sandwich C Mia's dessert recipe calls for 2.75 pounds of cherries and 4.5 pounds of apples She thinks of rounding the weights

    "Taylor's pattern calls for a piece of material that is 10.4 yards long" " She would cut the pieces 10 yd" so she loses that 0.4 of a piece

    B doesn't sound fair in my opinion. The cashier is basically raising the prices.

    if she rounds the weights up, its changing the recipe. Like... If a recipe calls for "1.23 ounces of sugar" if you add to much, or to less it might not turn out right....
