60.2 is nearest to 60
1.03 is nearest to 1
4.86 is nearest to 5

60/1*5
=12
Thus the best answer is B.

Solution



To find:
    • The option having the closest value of the expression \(\frac{60.2}{1.03*4.86}\)

Approach and Working:
As the question is asking for the closest value and not the exact value, we can approximate the values of the individual terms to get the closest value
    • 60.2 ~ 60
    • 1.03 ~ 1
    • 4.86 ~ 5

Hence, we can write the given expression as:
    • \(\frac{60.2}{1.03*4.86} = \frac{60}{1 * 5} = \frac{60}{5} = 12\)

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B

1.03 is a little bit BIGGER than 1
4.86 is a little bit SMALLER than 5
So, (1.03)(4.86) will be CLOSE TO (1)(5), aka 5

So, 60.2/(1.03 x 4.86) ≈ 60/(1.03 x 4.86)
≈ 60/5
≈ 12

Answer: B

Cheers,
Brent
