Sharon solved this problem.
The zoo needs 1436 pounds of hay each week to feed the animals. Hay costs $2.00 per pound. About how much does the zoo spend on hay each week?
Sharon said the zoo would spend $718 on hay each week.
Is Sharon's answer reasonable?
No, because 1500 • 2 = 3000, and the zoo needs 1436 pounds of hay each week, so the answer will be a bit more than this estimate.
Yes, because 1500 ÷ 2 = 750, and the zoo needs 1436 pounds of hay each week, so the answer will be a bit more than this estimate.

Sharon's answer is obviously wrong because you have to mulitply instead of divide.
No problem :)

could you help me with another one
Sure, make a new post.
The accountant wanted to find out how much money the company spent on paper for the the months of January, February, and March. He had this table with the information for each month. Would an estimate or an exact answer be needed?
Month Paper cost ($)

I'd say exact answer because you could add the numerals with ease.
