Estimate: 30; Exact: 33

Work Step by Step

To estimate the amount of time to produce the given number of license plates, we first round 986 to 1000 and round 32,538 to 30,000, then divide the rounded number of license plates by the rate per hour: 30,000 / 1000 = 30 To find the exact amount of time needed to produce the license plates, we divide the actual number of license plates by the actual rate per hour: 32,538 / 986 = 33
