The area of a rectangle is and its width is cm. Find its length and approximate it to the nearest hundredth of centimeter.
The area of a rectangle is given by the product of its length and width, so
We can change the divisor into a whole number by multiplying the divisor and dividend by 100.
Then divide. It is enough to divide until we get 3 decimal digits because it is required to approximate the length to the nearest hundredth of a centimetre.
Approximate to the nearest hundredth of a centimetre.
