Multiply 264 by 987 using a suitable strategy.

• A.

260,000

• B.

602,865

• C.

260,568

• D.

266,588

C. 260,568
Explanation
To multiply 264 by 987, we can use the standard long multiplication method. We multiply 264 by each digit of 987, starting from the rightmost digit. We get 4 multiplied by 264 equals 1056, 8 multiplied by 264 equals 2112, and 9 multiplied by 264 equals 2376. Then, we add these three products together: 1056 + 2112 + 2376 = 5544. Therefore, the correct answer is 260,568.

• B.

14000

• C.

14010

• D.

15000

B. 14000
Explanation
The correct answer is 14000 because when estimating the sum of 9708 and 4302, we round each number to the nearest thousand. 9708 rounds down to 9000 and 4302 rounds up to 5000. Adding these rounded numbers together gives us 9000 + 5000 = 14000.

3000

D. 3000
Explanation
To estimate the product of 54 and 56, we can round both numbers to the nearest tens place. 54 rounds to 50 and 56 rounds to 60. Multiplying 50 and 60 gives us 3000, which is the closest estimate to the actual product. Therefore, the answer is 3000.

Mr. Murphy's bee hives had 759 worker bees in the winter. Now that spring has come, the number of worker bees has grown by 388. To estimate the current number of worker bees, we can round 388 to the nearest hundred, which is 400. Adding 400 to the initial count of 759 gives us a total of 1159 worker bees. The closest option to this estimate is 1200, which is the correct answer.
