Writing in Math - How can estimating help you add two-digit numbers?

  • 3rd grade Math -

    Benchmark numbers are easier to add-usually ending in 0's or 5's.
    Ex:
    28+31 can be turned into 30+30. 28 was rounded up to 30, and 31 was rounded down to 30.
    4 and lower is rounded down; 5 and higher is rounded up. If the number is 3,4,5,6 or 7 it is rounded to five, if you're getting more specific.

    I hope this helps; but I'm only in 6th grade so I'm not sure (:
