Estimation in Operations on Numbers
To estimate sum and difference, we first round off each
number to the nearest tens, hundreds, thousands or millions and then apply the
required mathematical operation.
Solved example on Estimation in Operations on Numbers:
1. Find the actual and estimated sum of 126,289 and 375,484
by rounding off numbers to the nearest thousands.
Solution:
To round off to the nearest thousands place, we consider the
number at tenthousands place. Let us see the position of 126,289 on the number
line.
We observe that 126,289 is closer to 100,000. Therefore, it
is rounded down to 100,000. Next, we check the position of 375,484 on the
number line.
We note that 375,484 is closer to 400,000. Therefore, it is
rounded up to 400,000.
To find the estimated product or quotient, we round off
numbers to the greatest placevalue.
2. Find the actual and estimated product of 22,165 and 3,745
by rounding off numbers to the greatest placevalue.
Solution:
22,165 is rounded off to the nearest tenthousands. 3745 is
rounded off to the nearest thousands.
3. Estimate the quotient for 7,475 ÷ 510
Solution:
7,475 is rounded off to the nearest thousands
510 is rounded off to the nearest hundreds
7,475 is closer to 7,000
510 is closer to 500
So, 7,000 ÷ 500 = 14

There are six properties of multiplication of whole numbers that will help to solve the problems easily. The six properties of multiplication are Closure Property, Commutative Property, Zero Property, Identity Property, Associativity Property and Distributive Property.

To multiply a number by 10, 100, or 1000 we need to count the number of zeroes in the multiplier and write the same number of zeroes to the right of the multiplicand. Rules for the multiplication by 10, 100 and 1000: If we multiply a whole number by a 10, then we write one

Relation between Dividend, Divisor, Quotient and Remainder is. Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder. To understand the relation between dividend, divisor, quotient and remainder let us follow the following examples:

We will learn how to solve stepbystep the word problems on multiplication and division of whole numbers. We know, we need to do multiplication and division in our daily life. Let us solve some word problem examples.

The properties of division are discussed here: 1. If we divide a number by 1 the quotient is the number itself. In other words, when any number is divided by 1, we always get the number itself as the quotient. For example: (i) 7542 ÷ 1 = 7542 (ii) 372 ÷ 1 = 372

Multiplication of whole numbers is the sort way to do repeated addition. The number by which any number is multiplied is known as the multiplicand. The result of the multiplication is known as the product. Note: Multiplication can also be referred as product.

Subtraction of whole numbers is discussed in the following two steps to subtract one large number from another large number: Step I: We arrange the given numbers in columns, ones under ones, tens under tens, hundred under hundreds and so on.

We arrange the numbers one below the other in the place value columns. We start adding them one by one from the right most column and take the carry over to the next column, if required. We add the digits in each column taking the carry over, if any, to the next column the
