Compatible numbers 2008-11-07
From Erika:
When working with compatible numbers, when do you choose to round up or down? For example: In the problem: 373 divided by 4, one could round 373 to 400 and keep the 4 the same, and the answer would be 100; OR, one could round 373 down to 360 and keep the 4 the same, and the answer would be 90. When given the problem as an assignment, which way dictates how one would round, up or down?
