First you have to find out how many meters is 834 cm. Since 834 is a whole number, the decimal point is on the right of the digits. Move the decimal points two times to the left, and that’s how many meters 834 cm is. Then, you have to multiply that by $3.31, the cost.

BTW, I know you said this two weeks ago. I’m just helping you in case you get any more problems like this one.

Just what are they teaching in Second Grade now? Finger painting? Itsy-Bitsy Spider? They can't be teaching math if you're asking questions like that. 834 cm = 8.34 m. You do the rest, just use your head, it won't hurt, I promise.

Just kicking it around in my head says that it will be a bit short of $30, thus it must be $27.61 or $26.59 or $26.48. Use your calculator to check which of those three it is.

834 cm = 8.34 m;

cost per m = $3.31;

cost for 8.34 m = 8.34($3.31) = $ 27.6054 = $27.61 rounded to nearest cent.;

d. gives correct answer.

I get why you're anonymous. I would also be disappointed and embarrassed in myself for needing help on this question
