She needs to drive about $300$ miles a day, or slightly more accurate is $310$ miles per day.

#### Explanation:

The key word in the question is 'approximately'.
This indicates that a quick estimate is being done and that an accurate answer is not required.

$932.4$ miles is a bit more than $900$ miles,

A quick estimate gives:

$900$ miles in $3$ days is about $300$ miles per day.

Slightly more accurate would be to consider $932.4$ miles to be about $930$ miles.

$930$ miles in $3$ days is $930 \div 3 = 310$ miles per day.
