• "At Sal used 6000 instead of 6,200 it was kind of confusing because the estimated value that he used earlier and only changed on the first question was on the hundreds place but on that part it was now the whole value. He changed the value of thousands. Is it possible that we can choose either one of those?"
• See in this you just have to use your time tables.
2400 is used as in 3's time table 3x6 is 24. Same way in 6000. There is no 62 unless you multiply on and on.
• Answers: unreasonable ,reasonable, unreasonable.
• hey may i ask whats a the reasonable and unreasonable means ?
• Reasonable means If it could be or has a reason for the estimate to be like that and unreasonable is jurist the opposite.
• Nice!
