A student is attempting to calculate the square root of 27. Her work is shown below. Which statement below best applies to her mathematical reasoning? HELP ASAP Given 2003-04-01-00-00_files/i0220000.jpg, I observe that 27 is not a perfect square. I notice the perfect squares closest to 27 are 25 and 36, so I estimate the answer to be somewhere between 2003-04-01-00-00_files/i0220001.jpg and 2003-04-01-00-00_files/i0220002.jpg. Since 27 is closer to 25 than 36, I estimate 2003-04-01-00-00_files/i0220003.jpg

    The correct reasoning to \(estimate\) sqrt(27) is composed of \(all\) the statements posted. There is not one single statement not required for the reasoning. The last statement is valid for the present problem, but may not work at all times.

    @jmayk59 By the way, it would be to your advantage to proof-read your post to make sure all information is correctly posted. Copy and paste without proof-reading discourages help.
