Question:

Kyle has $950 in savings and wishes to donate one-fifth of it to 8 local charities. He estimates that he will donate around $30 to each charity. Which of the following correctly describes the reasonableness of his estimate?

A It is not reasonable because $240 is more than one-fifth of $1,000
Explaination

One-fifth of $1,000 is $200; a donation of $30 per charity results in a total of $240 in donations. This amount is more than his allotted one-fifth of savings. Thus, the estimate is not reasonable.
