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? A. 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. B. 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.

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

    But I'm not sure if that's entirely right.
