to the nearest .
To multiply decimals, first ignore the decimal point in both
numbers and multiply.
To place the decimal point, count the number of decimal places in
the factors. The number of decimal places in the product is equal
to that sum. The sum of the decimal places in these factors is 5,
so place the decimal point in the product 5 places from the right:
Then approximate to the nearest hundredth .
The digit in the thousandths place (7) is equal to 5 or more, so
round up to the next greatest hundredth.
