    $50

    Explanation

    Zebediah has to convert his Romania leu to USD.

    You are told that,

    1 USD = 2.89 RON

    This will mean that if you are to convert RON to USD, you divide it by 2.89.

    1USD=2.89RON

    177RON = (177/2.89) USD

    =$61.24

    The question asks what the estimate is. From the choices given, the closest answer to $61.24 is $50.
