#### Answer:

8

#### Explanation:

Lets use a calculator to give us something to compare to and decide if the compatible number solution is close enough.

By calculator

Rounding this up we have the value of 8

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rounding 5.23 we have 5

Rounding 40.06 we have 40

This compares well.

5 is compatible with 40 as the division is very strait forward
