Approximate vs approximately
I want to know the rule to using the word "approximately" correctly. To me, these sentences don't sound correct:
- This trail segment is part of an approximately 100-mile route. [Shouldn't be, "This trail segment is part of an approximate 100-mile route?"]
- The approximately 100-mile route passed through this section.
Help! I need a rule to follow! (Thanks)
Grammarly wants to correct the following sentence to state approximate not approximately, which I do not agree with - in the sentence below, approximately flows better to me.
The cost is approximately $1,200, but there are not enough funds to cover this.
