$148.4132$

#### Explanation:

Using a calculator, ${e}^{5}$ yields out $148.413159103 \ldots$

To round it to four decimal places, we only take the first four, which are $4131$.

Notice how there is a $5$ after the $1$, so we round the $1$ to a $2$. Then, just put back the whole number in before the decimal, which is $148$.

So, we get:

$148.4132$
