estimate the total weight of two boxes that weigh 9.4lb and 62.6 lb using rounding and compatible numbers. Which estimate is closer to the actual total weight? why?
thanks!

math 
Damon,
9 + 63 = 72 using rounding which happens to be exact and I also call 9 and 63 compatible numbers since adding 9 to anything is super easy.

math 
Ms. Sue,
10 + 62 = 72 lbs.
9 + 63 = 72 lbs. 
math 
Mrs. Kopecky,
9+63=72 or 10+62
