1-1

There are three types of Estimation:

(that we are going to look at)

1. Estimate by rounding

2. Front-end estimation (useful for finding sums)

3. Compatible numbers (useful for division)

78.96 + 58.31 80 + 60 Round to the nearest whole number.

140Add.

COURSE 2 LESSON 1-1

At the zoo, you see a Colombian black spider monkey. The length of its body is 58.31 cm. The length of its tail is 78.96 cm. To the nearest centimeter, estimate the total length of the monkey’s body and tail.

Estimation should be quick and easy and DONE IN YOUR HEAD!

1. ADD/SUB: Decide which place is best to round to and then round all numbers to that place. (Usually the highest place in the smallest number)

2. Perform the given operation using the rounded numbers.

3. Give your answer with an approximately equal to () sign and units.

The total length is about 140 cm.

1-1

Round each factor its highest place value.

8.75 9

18.5 20

20 9 = 180 Multiply.

COURSE 2 LESSON 1-1

A rectangular kitchen is 18.5 ft long and 8.75 ft wide. Use rounding to estimate the area of the kitchen in square feet.

When estimating with multiplication, round each factor to its highest place value.

You should only have to multiply a single digit times a single digit.

Remember, the zeros only hold the place value, so they can be put back when the multiplication is complete.

The area of the kitchen is about 180 ft2.

- Estimate first, then do the actual multiplication to see how close your estimate was

Very useful for finding sums of several items. (for example when shopping or in line at McD’s)

1. Add the front-end digits

2. Estimate the sum of the lesser numbers and adjust the sum appropriately.

$2.87

$6.33

$4.11

$3.95

About 1 whole

First add the front-end numbers

So add 2 to your front-end estimate

About 1 whole

So this trip to the store should cost you about $17.

$15.

+ 2

= 17

COURSE 2 LESSON 1-1

At a snack shop, you order a taco that costs $3.79, a juice that costs $.89, and a yogurt that costs $1.39. Estimate the total cost of your order.

Step 1: Add the front-end digits.

Step 2: Estimate the total number of cents to the nearest dollar.

The total cost is about $6.

Set up the quotient.

1. Round the divisor.

2. Choose a number that

goes in evenly, (i.e. is compatible.)

7Simplify.

COURSE 2 LESSON 1-1

Suppose you have saved $58.80. About how many CDs can you buy if each costs $8.25?
