Question

what is the most reasonable estimate for 54% of 168

A:8.4
B:46
C:84
D:110

2 Answer

  • Just by estimating, 54% is a little over 1/2 of 168. ¬†You know by that, that neither A or B is close. The real answer is 90.72, so if your instructor wants you to round up, it would be D
  • C 84. In a quick number crunch your first move is to find 50% of 160 which is 80. The only number above half is 84 so since we need 54% then 84 is the correct answer
