Without finding the exact answer, select which of the following numbers is the best estimate of each sum or difference and justify your choices: -2/3, 0, 2/2/3.

a. 1/9 + 2/5 – 1/3 – 3/4

I am confused on where to begin on this question.

    1/9 + 2/5 is less than 1/2

    -1/3 + -3/4 is more than negative 1.

    Which of the three answers comes closest?

    -2/3, 0, 2/2/3.
