Which of the following is the best approximation of \(\sqrt{\frac{98.763*0.49^2}{0.252}}\)?


A. \(\frac{1}{4}\)

B. \(\frac{1}{2}\)

C. \(5\)

D. \(10\)

E. \(25\)


Instead of calculating, we'll just estimate (especially as that's what we're asked to do)
This is an Alternative approach.


Rounding our numbers gives \(\sqrt{\frac{100*0.5^2}{0.25}}\)
Since (0.5)^2 = 0.25, this reduces to sqrt(100) = 10.

(D) is our answer.

98.763~100
\(0.49^2\) ~\(0.5^2\) = 0.25
0.252~0.25

***** we have to apply square root******

\(\frac{(100 * 0.25)}{0.25}\)
=100
=\(\sqrt{100}\)
=10

Thus the best answer is D.
