# Victoria's printer can print 8.804 pages in one minute. If Victoria prints pages for 0.903 minutes, about how many pages will she have?

$7.95$ pages or say $8$ pages

#### Explanation:

In $1$ minute Victoria can print $8.804$ pages

$\therefore$ in $0.903$ minutes she can print $8.804 \times 0.903$

= $7.950012 \cong 7.95$ pages, say $8$ pages

Number of pages in 0.903 minutes $\to 7.950$ rounded to 3 decimal places

#### Explanation:

Using ratio:

$\left(\text{count of pages printed")/("time}\right) \to \frac{8.804}{1}$

But we need 0.903 minutes

$\left[\frac{8.804}{1} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\times 1}\right] \equiv \left[\frac{8.804}{1} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{\times \frac{0.903}{0.903}}\right] = \frac{7.950012}{0.903}$

'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The question states the count of pages to 3 decimal places. Your answers should always be in the same format as the question unless specifically instructed otherwise. Also you should always declare the number of decimal places rounded to if you round the value.
