What is 33-5 rounded to the nearest half

Rounding mixed fractions


I am not sure what the problem should say.  Is it supposed to be 33 minus 5, or is the minus sign supposed to be a division sign?  Maybe something else that I am missing?

There's something missing from this equation --- with 33-5, that's a whole number, there's nothing to round. However, with a division sign, the result is 6.5  Let us know what the sign is. Although you still have to round the 6.5 to 7 anyway...Let us know if this is what you're referring to.
