Lesson 5 -1:

2
A benchmark is a number that is easy to use when you estimate. When estimating the sums and differences of fractions, we use the benchmarks 0, ½, and 1. (another chart on page 249 in textbook)

3
Change each fraction to 0, ½, or 1. Add or subtract. 5 11 + 3 25 + ½ 0= ½

4
+ 7 15 4 9 + ½ ½ = 1

5
If you have mixed numbers, then round the fraction part up to 1 or down to 0. If the fraction is greater than ½, then round up to 1. If it is less than ½, then round down to 0.
