Solution by Steps
step 2
The proportion from the survey is 2145\frac{21}{45}
step 3
We apply this proportion to the total number of clients, which is 516
step 4
The calculation is 2145×516\frac{21}{45} \times 516
step 5
Simplifying the calculation gives us 2145×516=12045=240.8\frac{21}{45} \times 516 = \frac{1204}{5} = 240.8
step 6
The most reasonable estimate is the whole number closest to 240.8, which is 241
