0.15 x 495 = 74.25 (Calculate: 15 x 495, switch comma two places to the left.)

74.25 / 10 = 7.425

Answer A.

This can be written as

(15*495)/997 ~(15*500)/1000
~=>75/10 = 7.5

A)

Multiplying the entire expression by 100/100 we have:

(15 x 495)/997, which is close to (15 x 500)/1000 = 15/2 = 7.5.

Alternate Solution:

Let’s approximate the numerator by re-expressing it as 0.15 x 500, which equals 75. Now let’s round the denominator to 10. Thus, we have an an approximate answer of 75/10 = 7.5.

Answer: A
