# Worded question help watch

1. When a question asks you, for example:

Will the car depreciate to less than 5% of its original value?

Are you supposed to calculate to 5% or 4%? Because I assumed 4% but when I do to 5% the answer is always rounded and without decimals.

Although I'm not sure about it in an accounting context, even if it hits 4.9999998% of its original value it's less than 5%.
