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) 730 + 998
Round off to hundreds
730 rounds off to 700
998 rounds off to 1000

Hence, 730 + 998 = 700 + 1000 = 1700

(b) 796 – 314
Round off to hundreds
796 rounds off to 800
314 rounds off to 300

Hence, 796 – 314 = 800 – 300 = 500

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

Hence, 12904 + 2888 = 13000 + 3000 = 16000

(d) 28292 – 21496

Round off to thousands
28292 round off to 28000
21496 round off to 21000

Hence, 28292 – 21496 = 28000 – 21000 = 7000

Ten more such examples are

(i) 330 + 280 = 300 + 300 = 600

(ii) 3937 + 5990 = 4000 + 6000 = 10000

(iii) 6392 – 3772 = 6000 – 4000 = 2000

(iv) 5440 – 2972 = 5000 – 3000 = 2000

(v) 2175 + 1206 = 2000 + 1000 = 3000

(vi) 1110 – 1292 = 1000 – 1000 = 0

(vii) 910 + 575 = 900 + 600 = 1500

(viii) 6400 – 4900 = 6000 – 5000 = 1000

(ix) 3731 + 1300 = 4000 + 1000 = 5000

(x) 6485 – 4319 = 6000 – 4000 = 2000

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

(a) 439 + 334 + 4,317
(b) 1,08,734-47,599
(c) 8,325-491
(d) 4,89,348-48,365
Make four such examples:

Answer: (a) 439 + 334 + 4,317
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
439 + 334 + 4,317 = 400 + 300 + 4300 = 5,000

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
439 + 334 + 4317 = 440 + 330 + 4320 = 5090.

(b) 1,08,734 – 47,599
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
1,08,734 – 47,599 = 1,08,700 – 47,600 = 61,100

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
1,08,734 – 47,599 = 1,08,730 – 47,600 = 61,130.

(c) 8325 – 491
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
8325 – 491 = 8300 – 500 = 7800

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
8325 – 491 = 8330 – 490 = 7840.

(d) 4,89,348 – 48,365
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
4,89,348 – 48,365 = 4,89,300 – 48,400 = 4,40,900

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
4,89,348 – 48,365 = 4,89,350 – 48,370 = 4,40,980

Example 1:
384 + 562
Solution:
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
384 + 562 = 400 + 600
= 1,000

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
384 + 562 = 380 + 560
= 940

Example 2:
8765 – 3820
Solution:
(i) Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
8765 – 3820 = 8800 – 3900
= 4900

(ii) Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
8765 – 3820 = 8770 – 3820
= 4950

Example 3:
6653 + 8265
Solution:
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
6653 + 8265
= 6700 + 8300
= 15,000

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
6653 + 8265
= 6650 + 8270
= 14920

Example 4:
3826 – 1262

Solution:
Rough estimate (Rounding off to nearest hundreds)
3826 – 1262
= 3800 – 1300
= 2500

Closer estimate (Rounding off to nearest tens)
3826 – 1262
= 3830 – 1260
= 2570

Question 3: Estimate the following products using general rule:

(a) 578 × 161

(b) 5281 × 3491

(c) 1291 × 592

(d) 9250 × 29

578 round off to 600 161 round off to 200
The estimated product = 600 × 200 = 1,20,000

(b) 5281 × 3491
5281 round of to 5,000
3491 round off to 3,500
The estimated product = 5,000 × 3,500 = 1,75,00,000

(c) 1291 × 592
1291 round off to 1300
592 round off to 600
The estimated product = 1300 × 600 = 7,80,000

(d) 9250 × 29
9250 round off to 10,000
229 round off to 30|
The estimated product = 10,000 × 30 = 3,00,000
