10. Q5. Gregory decides to drive to Toronto to visit a college friend. After crossing the Canadian border, he discovers that the speed limits are posted in kilometers rather than miles per hour. Luckily, Gregory remembers that 1 kilometer equals 1.6 miles and that to convert kilometers to miles, he can multiply the number of kilometers by 0.6214. This method would be an example of a problem-solving strategy called: a heuristic.
trial and error.
