Shelia solved this problem.
A local theater sold 624 tickets for a recent performance. If the tickets were $3.00 each, how much money did it collect
Shelia said $208
Is Shelia's answer reasonable
A
Yes because 600 ÷ 3 = 200, and 624 tickets were sold, so the answer will be a little more than this estimate
B
Yes because 30 ÷ 3 = 210, and 624 tickets were sold, so the answer will be a little less than this estimate
C
No because 600 • 3 = 1800, and 624 tickets were sold, so the answer will be a little less than this estimate
D
No because 600 • 3 = 1800, and 624

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its D :) its common sense. It cant be less than 208, because if there were over 60 tickets sold, the price would have to be below a dollar per ticket to get 208

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Each implies multiplication. Thus, Shelia is wrong.
