Exact and Approximated figures


In paragraph 14, there is a part of a sentence saying "75 crew members", nothing before or after that phrase states that it is an estimated number, so it should be exact.

In paragraph 2, there is a part of a sentence saying "up to 6 per cent", the phrase 'up to' states that it might be any percentage lower than 6.

iv) I think that the figures above are rounded off to the nearest whole number.
