Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 10.66 so rouding up would make it... 11? right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's correct, because you can't really purchase 0.666 or 2/3 of a bag, you would have to purchase a whole bag... and then have some left in the shed
