Homework Help: Math

Posted by B.B. on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 12:11pm.

Here is the original question: Give an estimate for the following expression: 978*66. Is the exact answer going to be greater than or less than the estimate? Here is what I have: I rounded 978 to 1000 and 66 to 70. 1000*70=70,000 the actual answer was 978*66=64,448 so the estimation was greater than the actual answer. Did I do this problem right? I used the rounding technique. Thanks.
