D. About 14

Please, Ms. Sue or someone, help me!!

## To estimate -- I'll multiply 0.8 times 20 which is about ?

## Yes.

## 0.8 x 20 is equal to 16? Am I right??

## You're welcome, Pier.

## Thank you, Ms. Sue!!

## To estimate how many free throws Alice makes, we need to calculate 81.25% of 21. Let's break this down into steps:

Step 1: Convert the percentage to decimal form by dividing it by 100.

81.25% = 81.25/100 = 0.8125

Step 2: Multiply the decimal by the total number of free throws attempted.

0.8125 x 21 = 17.0625

Now, since Alice cannot make a fractional number of free throws, we need to round this number to the nearest whole number.

The options given are: 16, 2, 20, and 14.

Rounding 17.0625 to the nearest whole number, we get:

A. About 16.

Therefore, the best estimate for the number of free throws Alice makes is about 16.
