"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..
2. Try doing the total amount divided by the total tourists

3. 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.
