Estimate ten-elevenths plus one-seventh by rounding each fraction to the nearest half.
00:00:09.670 --> 00:00:11.890
What does it mean to the nearest half?
00:00:13.960 --> 00:00:28.110
For this problem, we’ll have three main choices if we’re gonna estimate to the nearest half: we could have zero halves or just zero; we could have one-half or two halves.
00:00:30.240 --> 00:00:37.790
And what we wanna do is to see where the fractions we’re working with fall on a number line like this.
00:00:39.980 --> 00:00:50.460
Whichever number they’re closest to — whichever half they’re closest to — zero, one-half, or two halves; that’s what we’ll use for rounding.
00:00:52.250 --> 00:00:57.990
Ten-elevenths is nearly eleven-elevenths; it is almost one.
00:00:58.450 --> 00:01:03.230
So for rounding purposes, we’ll consider ten-elevenths one.
00:01:04.650 --> 00:01:07.050
Ten-elevenths is about one.
00:01:08.530 --> 00:01:13.160
One-seventh is actually closest to zero.
00:01:14.880 --> 00:01:20.260
I know that three and a half sevenths would be equal to one-half.
00:01:20.410 --> 00:01:25.240
One-seventh is much closer to zero than it is to one-half.
00:01:27.240 --> 00:01:31.110
So for rounding, we round one-seventh to zero.
00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:34.390
And then we estimate.
00:01:34.800 --> 00:01:39.290
So we add the two together: one plus zero equals one.
00:01:41.670 --> 00:01:45.800
This is the estimation for ten-elevenths plus one-seventh.
