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.
