## Chapter 1 Knowing our Numbers Exercise 1.3

Question 1: Estimate each of the following using general rule:
a) 730 + 998
b) 796 - 314
c) 12,904 + 2,888
d) 28,292 - 21,496
Make ten more such examples of addition, subtraction and estimation of their outcome.

a)
Round off to hundreds
730 rounds off to 700
998 rounds off to 1000
= 700 + 1000 = 1700

b)
Round off to hundreds
796 rounds off to 800
314 rounds off to 300
= 800 - 300 = 500

c)
Round off to thousands
12904 rounds off to 13000
2888 rounds off to 3000
= 13000 + 3000 = 16000

d)
Round off to thousands

Round off to hundreds
611 round off to 600
455 round off to 500
= 600 - 500 = 100

iv) 5440 - 2972
Round off to thousands
5440 round off to 5000
2972 round off to 3000
= 5000 - 3000 = 2000

Round off to thousands
2091 round off to 2000
9845 round off to 10000
= 2000 + 10000 = 12000

vi) 1990 - 1292
Round off to thousands
1990 round off to 2000
1292 round off to 1300
= 2000 - 1300 = 700

vii) 9100 + 5750
Round off to thousands
9100 round off to 9000
5750 round off to 6000
= 9000 + 6000 = 15000

viii) 6400 + 4900
Round off to thousands
6400 round off to 6000
4900 round off to 5000
= 6000 + 5000 = 11000

ix) 3731 - 1300
Round off to thousands
3731 round off to 4000
1300 round off to 1000
= 4000 - 1000 = 3000

x) 6885 - 4356
Round off to thousands
6885 round off to 7000
4356 round off to 4000
= 7000 - 4000 = 3000

Question 2: Give a rough estimate (by rounding off to nearest hundreds) and also a closer estimate (by rounding off to nearest tens):
