Rounding 2000-04-15
Tawana Brown pose la question :
I was uncertain as to whether a number such as 85.25 rounding to the nearest tenth would be 85.3 or 85.2. I thought I had heard somewhere that if 5 is the last number that you don't round up. But I have also heard that anything 5 and above you do round up. It's been awhile since I've done rounding, so I need a refresher course.

Spreading a rumor 1999-09-13
Bornstar14 pose la question :
There is someone who wants to spread a rumor within 7 days to 250,000,000 people. he wants to know how many people he should tell on the first day (assuming the rumor is passed by everyone who was told to the same amount of people) so that everyone knows on the 7th day. What I did is the 7th root of 250,000,000. this answer is not possible unless rounded. is it okay for the number to be approximate?
