#### Explanation:

Rounded to the nearest

#41 ~~ 40#

#58 ~~ 60#

So:

#41 xx 58 ~~ 40 xx 60#

To multiply

#40xx60 = (4xx10)xx(6xx10)#

#color(white)(40xx60) = 4xx6xx10xx10#

#color(white)(40xx60) = 24xx100#

#color(white)(40xx60) = 2400#

So

#41xx58~~40xx60=2400#

Actually:

#41xx58 = 2378#

which to the nearest
