I’m not positive, but this is what my class came up with:

Largest: 9.64 * 8.75 = 84.35

Lowest: 1.35 * 2.46 = 3.321

The smallest: 1.35 times 2.46

Same answer for the least.

well i was close 1.36 X 2.45

REAL QUODENT 1.35 X 2.46

i was so close OwO”.

why did it duplacate ?

well i was close 1.36 X 2.45

REAL QUODENT 1.35 X 2.46

i was super close OwO”.

I think that the largest is 9.76 x 8.65

This one doesn’t work, because the 6 got repeated 🙂
