    "In the UK the total spent by tourists was $36 600 million.
    There were 29.3 million tourists.
    Work out the average spent per tourist in the UK.

    Give your answer to the nearest $10, if there was less tourists than the money spent, wouldn't it be 10 or 0? By the question each tourist spent less than $1? Or am I getting confused here..

    36600000000 / 29300000 = 1249.146758

    nearest $10 = nearest tenth of a dollar

    1249.146758 is approximately equal to (based on what the question told us) = 1250

    therefore the answer is $1250 per student.
