3-2 Estimating Decimals When numbers are about the same value, you can use clustering to estimate. Clustering means rounding the numbers to the same value.

3-2 Estimating Decimals Additional Example 1: Health Application Nancy wants to cycle, ice skate, and water ski for 30 minutes each. About how many calories will she burn in all? (Cycling = 165.5 calories, ice skating = 177.5 calories, and water skiing = 171.5 calories) 165.5170 The addends cluster around 170. 177.5170 To estimate the total number of calories, round each addend to 170. 171.5+ 170 Add. 510 Nancy burns about 510 calories.

3-2 Estimating Decimals Check It Out: Example 1 Abner wants to run, roller-skate, and snow ski for 60 minutes each. About how many calories will he burn in all? (Running = 185.5 calories, roller-skating = 189.5 calories, and snow skiing = 191.5 calories.) 190 × 3 = 570 calories
