Problem

$2.46\times 8.163\times (5.17+4.829)$ is closest to

$\text{(A)}\ 100 \qquad \text{(B)}\ 200 \qquad \text{(C)}\ 300 \qquad \text{(D)}\ 400 \qquad \text{(E)}\ 500$

Solution

We can round. We can make 2.46*8.163*(5.17+4.829) to 2*8*(5+5) which equals 160. 160 is closest to 200 so the answer is B. ~avamarora
