Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Altogether, these come out as 10,627 if you add them. From there, as the hundreds place is above 5, you bump the whole number up to 11,000. (Goose might be right here, and I'm just having a comprehension issue)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or for the numerically correct answer, we would use 8,276 + 2451 to get 10,627 Miles, which would round up to 11,000 Miles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know what teacher gave you this problem but it's an awful one, it has asked you to round each number, setting you more than 600 off in an equation that only goes up to 10,000...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Tricky. But to be safe, go with 10,000 because it does say each number
