compatible numbers When estimating division problems, rounding will not work very well. You must use compatible numbers. Compatible numbers Compatible numbers are numbers that contain a basic division fact… …8,100 ÷90, 720 ÷ 8, 144,000 ÷ 120

Step 2: Find the closest basic division fact to these numbers. Step 3: Use the basic fact to change the dividend and divisor in to compatible numbers, and divide. 0 1 - 0 = 1 0 1 zero in the quotient
