1. So you want the sum of 1+2+3+....+12+13+14.

Well, there are 14 numbers. Divide them in half at 7, divide them again at 3 1/2 and 10 1/2

so 1/4 of the numbers are closest to zero, 1/2 of the numbers are closest to 7, and 1/4 of the numbers are closest to 14

Sum= 1/4*14*1+1/2*14*7+ 1/4*14*14

Now here is another method, a college method, call the sum of arithemetic series..

Sum= 14/2 *(1+14)=7*15=105

So the estimate was not far off.

First round to the nearest whole number. 10.3 + 1.46 11.53 + 7.23 so i believe 10 + 1.50 = 1.60?? then 11.50 + 7.20 is 18.70 ? Use front-end estimation to estimate each sum. 4.39 + 9.57 3.62 + 2.31 would it be 4.40 + 10.00 = 14.40

Find a two mixed numbers such that when you estimate their sum by rounding to the nearest whole number you get a different estimate than when you round to the nearest half. Not sure about rounding to the nearest half???
