Answer:

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.
