Let's repeat the most important part of that... it'll save us a whole lot of work.
TO THE CLOSEST HUNDREDTH.
One more time, with feeling... TO THE CLOSEST HUNDREDTH
Only one of the answers is a number that includes the right number of
numbers after the decimal point... to the hundredths place.
Now, if we can remember what the hundredths place is,
we can answer this question in a snap.
If not, we'll tell you just this once. You're on your own for the test, though.
The hundredTHs place, with the "T-H" sound
at the end, is two spots to the right of the decimal point.
Not three, like its buddy the thousandths place, or one, like the tenths place.
So which of the answer choices has two numbers after the decimal point?
Option D, 7215.26.
Saves us a lot of time punching numbers on our calculator, doesn't it?
