Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think a good estimate would be within the closest 100's and 10's of the units, so 62 is 60 if we round it, and 5,071 becomes 5,000 when rounded. It's more logical. Think of it this way: if I was dividing \[\frac{ 4 }{ 2 }\] a better estimate would be 5/3 instead of 7/4 because 5/3 is closer to 2/4 than 7/4
