estimating
by: Anonymous

hi i am a six grader at hildibrant indeterminate school and i have an idea! estimation is somebody trying to find and approximate answer not an exact answer. when i estimate i like to for example my teacher show the hole class a trick to estimate so if the number is 56 you would look at the last number and that is the six so you would say if it is 5 or more add 1 more 4 or less let it rest and because it is is a six the hole number will become 60! And that is my easy way to estimate. (thanks)
