# Estimating the Number of Stores on Each Level of a Shopping Mall

## What are reasonable estimates for the number of stores on each level of the shopping mall?

Select all that apply.

1. 56 stores on each level

2. 57 stores on each level

## Reasonable Estimates for the Number of Stores on Each Level

The shopping mall has a total of 226 stores on 4 levels. To estimate the number of stores on each level, we can divide the total number of stores by the number of levels. 226 stores ÷ 4 levels = 56.5 stores per level.

Since we can't have a fraction of a store, we need to round this number to a whole number. The reasonable estimates for the number of stores on each level would be:

1. 56 stores on each level

2. 57 stores on each level

## Explanation

Dividing 226 by 4 gives us 56.5 stores per level. Since we can't have half a store, we have to round it to the nearest whole number. Therefore, both 56 and 57 are reasonable estimates for the number of stores on each level.

In conclusion, a reasonable estimate for the number of stores on each level of the shopping mall would be either 56 or 57 stores.
