1. To divide 572 = 4, Stanley estimated to place
the first digit of the whole-number quotient.
In which place is the first digit of the whole-
number quotient?

1 Answer

  • The first digit of the whole- number quotient will be in the hundred place.

    To determine which place will the first digit of the whole- number quotient be placed after taking the quotient of 572 and 4, we will follow the steps below;

    • Round up 572 to 1 significant figure. The value expressed as one significant figure is 600.

    • Since the divisor is a unit value, we will not be rounding it up.

    • Take the quotient of 600 and 4.

    [tex]\frac{600}{4}=\frac{150\times 4}{4 \times 1} =150[/tex]

    From the result, we can see that the first digit of the whole- number quotient is to the nearest hundred (100)
