Question description

A lot of the algebra problems we solve in the work environment will be exact.For example calculating the floor space of a room ( length * width), the sales tax on an item, or the medication for a patient.But for some of the important issues, when we solve problems in the real world, we often get answers that do not come exact as we do not have exact input.Nor do we know the answers.This is just the nature of the beast yet many individual contributors, managers, and executives are called upon to do this on a regular basis.Only instructors and text authors, who are very careful, can craft questions with answers that always come out even and have known data inputs.For this DQ give an example of such a calculation that involves these unknowns.How does one know if their answer is correct?How does one determine how accurate an answer you need

It only needs to be around 150 words
