Math in My World

Example 1
There are passenger trains in the world that can travel at 267 miles per hour. About how far could a train travel in 3 hours? Estimate 3 × 267.
Round 267 to its greatest place value.

267 rounds to ________

Then use basic facts and patterns to multiply. To which place was 267 rounded? _______
Since 267 was rounded up, the estimated product is greater than the actual product.
So, the train can travel about ___ miles in ____ hours
Given that,
There are passenger trains in the world that can travel at 267 miles per hour.
The number of hours is 3.
3 x 267 = 801.
267 rounded to the greatest place value is 300.
3 x 300 = 900.
Since 267 was rounded up, the estimated product is greater than the actual product.
So, the train can travel about 900 miles in 3 hours.

Example 2.
Estimate 8 × 2,496.
Round 2,496 to the thousands place value. Then multiply using basic facts and patterns. 2,496 rounds to ____

Since 2,496 was rounded down, the estimated product is less than the actual product.
So, 8 × 2,496 is about _____.

8 x 2,496 = 19,968.
2,496 rounded to the greatest place value is 2,000.
8 x 2,000 = 16,000.
Since 2,496 was rounded down, the estimated product is less than the actual product.
So, 8 × 2,496 is about 2,000.

Example 3
Lacey’s older brother is going to a four-year college. The cost of his tuition is $8,562 each year. About how much will 4 years of college tuition cost? Estimate 4 ×$8,562.
Round to the greatest place value. Then multiply.
4 × ____ = ____ Since 8,562 was rounded _____, the estimated product is ___ than the actual product. So, tution will cost about _____.

Given that,
The cost of his tuition is $8,562 each year. The 4 years of college tuition cost is 4 x$8,562 = 34,248.
$8,562 rounded to the greatest place value is 9,000 4 x$9000 = $36,000. Since 8,562 was rounded 9000, the estimated product is$36,000 than the actual product. So, tuition will cost about $36,000. Talk Math Which product is closer to the estimate of 1,600: 4 × 385 or 4 × 405? Explain. Answer: The product of 4 × 385 is 1,540. The product of 4 × 405 is 1,620. The 1,620 is closer to the 1,600 than 1,540. Guided Practice Estimate. Round to the greatest place value. Circle whether the estimate is greater than or less than the actual product. Question 1. greater than less than Answer: Multiplication of 9 with$870 = $7,830. 9 x$870 = $7,830. 870 rounded to the greatest place value is 900. Since$870 was rounded up, the estimated product is greater than the actual product.
9 x $900 =$8100. Question 2. greater than
less than
