Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

#1345/99 = 13.58...#

To round to the nearest integer we need to look at the digit in the tenths position, just to the right of the decimal place.

If the digit in the tenths position is greater than or equal to #5# we need to add #1# to the digit in the one's position (the number just to the left of the decimal point.)

If the digit in the tenths position is less than #5# we just need to remove the decimal portion of the number.

For this problem, the digit in the tenths position is a #5# which is greater than or equal to #5# so we need to add #1# to the digit in the ones position:

#1345/99 = 1color(red)(3).58... = 1color(red)(4)# rounded to the nearest integer.
