687 - 239 (without adjustment)

is this right?

600 + 200= 800 + 126=926

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 10:44pmIf your problem is 687 - 239, it makes sense to me to do it this way:

700 = 200 = 500

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 10:49pmCorrection:

700 - 200 = 500

**Bart**, Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 10:54pmRight it was subtraction. So what does "without adjustment" mean?

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 11:03pmI'm not a math teacher -- but I assume you don't need to adjust for the small differences between your estimated numbers and the actual numbers.

This site may explain it.
