Estimate Quotients
When asking the student
to estimate a quotient in a division problem, he/she should think to round
the dividend (first number below) to 250 and 200 (since they are the
closest rounded numbers above and below 229 that are easily divisible by
5. Therefore, the
student should use 250 divided by 5 = 50 and then use 200 divided by 5 =
40. With a little practice this gets much easier.
