Use Compatible Numbers…
When estimating fractions you can use 2 different strategies. Use Compatible Numbers… …when multiplying a whole number and a fraction. …when multiplying a mixed number and a fraction. 65 3 x 7 16 3 3 x 5 4

Use Compatible Numbers…
When estimating fractions you can use 2 different strategies. Use Compatible Numbers… …when multiplying a whole number and a fraction. …when multiplying a mixed number and a fraction. Use Rounding… …when multiplying two mixed numbers. …when multiplying a mixed number and a whole number. 17 2 4 9 x 65 7 3 10 x 7 5 2 x 1 16 3 3 x 2 5 4

Whole Number X Fraction
When to Use What... Type of Problem Example Best Strategy Whole Number X Fraction 5 6 41 x Compatible Numbers

41 35 42 ≈ 5 x 6 5 x 6 Estimation with Compatible Numbers 42 ÷ 6 = 7
When estimating a product of a fraction and a whole number, use compatible numbers. 41 35 5 x 6 42 5 42 ÷ 6 = 7 x 7 x 5 = 35 6 Step 1: Find the closest basic math fact to 6 and 41. Step 2: Rewrite the problem with the compatible numbers. Step 3: Divide the whole number by the denominator. Step 4: Multiply the quotient by the numerator.

When estimating a product of a fraction and a whole number, use compatible numbers. 41 35 5 x 6 42 5 42 ÷ 6 = 7 x 7 x 5 = 35 6 Step 1: Find the closest basic math fact to 6 and 41. Step 2: Rewrite the problem with the compatible numbers. Step 3: Divide the whole number by the denominator. Step 4: Multiply the quotient by the numerator.

Closest Basic Math Fact
Review: Compatible Numbers Compatible numbers allow you to estimate quotients by changing the dividend and the divisor into a basic math fact. Division Problem Closest Basic Math Fact Estimation 98 ÷ 9 99 ÷ 9 = 11 55 ÷ 8 56 ÷ 8 = 7 29 ÷ 7 28 ÷ 7 = 4 40 ÷ 6 42 ÷ 6 = 7 11 ÷ 3 12 ÷ 3 = 4
