Simple Steps to Estimating whole numbers • 1. Find whatever place value you are looking to estimate to2. look at the digit to the right. If the digit to the right is "5 or higher"the place valueINCREASES by 1. 4. If the digit to the right IS NOT "5 or higher"the place valueSTAYS as it is. 5. All the rest of the numbers to the right of the place value become ZEROS.
Example 1:Estimate 1,754 to the nearest thousand. 1,754 >>> 1 is in the thousands place. Look to the right of the 1and notice that there is a 7. 7 is "5 or higher",so the 1 increases by 1and becomes a 2. All the other numbers to the rightof the 2 now become Zeros. Meaning: 1,754 rounds UP to 2,000
Example 2:Estimate 32,795to the nearest ten-thousand 32,795 >>> 3 is in the ten-thousands place. Look to the right of the 3and notice that there is a 2. 2 is NOT "5 or higher",so the 3 STAYS as it is. All the other numbers to the rightof the 3 now become Zeros. Meaning: 32,795 rounds DOWN to 30,000
Remember! ~ If the number to the rightof the place value you're looking to estimateis "5 or higher",increase the place value number by 1.~ If the number to the rightof the place value you're looking to estimateis NOT "5 or higher",the place value number STAYSas it is.
Rounding is one way to estimate products. Now that we have determined that rounding can be used to estimate results we can also justify the reasonableness of rounding products as well.
For instance, let's take a look at the cost of a six pack of soda. We know that a six pack of soda cost about $2.99. So, if we round $2.99 to the nearest dollar, it would be $3.00. Saying a six pack of soda costs $3.00 would bereasonable. Saying a six pack of soda costs $10.00 would not be reasonable.
Let's take a look at how to round numbers to multiply…Round to the greatest place value to estimate products. Estimate 2 x 258 = ? You need to round 258 to the greatest place value. Step 1 Compare. The 2 in 258 means 2 hundreds. So 258 is between 200 and 300. Step 2 Round to the closer hundred. The halfway point between 200 and 300 is 250.
258 is closer to 300 than 200. Step 3Use the rounded number to estimate. 2 x 258 rounds to about 2 x 300 = 600 2 x 258 is about 600.
Estimate to the nearest ten. 16 20x 2x 2 ? 40 Use the rounded number to estimate. 16 rounds to about 20 2 x 16 is about 2 x 20 = 40. 40 is a reasonable answer.
Estimate to the nearest hundred. 157 200x 2x 2 ? 400 Use the rounded number to estimate. 157 rounds to about 200 2 x 157 is about 2 x 200 = 400. 400 is a reasonable answer.
Estimate to the nearest thousand. 6400 6000 x 2x 2 ? 12,000 Use the rounded number to estimate. 6400 rounds to about 6000 2 x 6400 is about 2 x 6000 = 12,000. 12,000 is a reasonable answer.
Use compatible numbers to estimate the quotient 44 6 Round 44 to the closest product of 6. 6 x 7 = 42 and 6 x 8 = 48 42 is closest to 44, so the answer would be 7.
Estimate the quotient: 85 ⌯ 7 Since 7 x 12 is 84, that is the closest product of 7. So the estimate of 85 ⌯ 7 = 12
Round to the greatest place value to estimate products. Round to compatible numbers to estimate quotients.Use the rounded number to justify the reasonableness of estimating.
