Can someone please show me how to estimate mixed numbers. An exsample like 6 and two thrids times 4 and one fifth. Also estimate by rounding to 0, 1/2, or 1. Exsample...5/8x9/10. I would appreciate any help I am in the 6th grade and me and math are not doing so well.....Thanks!

• math -

6 2/3 rounds to 7, 4.2 to 4, 7 * 4 = 28

5/8 is close to 1/2, 9/10 to 1, 1/2 * 1 = 1/2
