  • Would this be a way of teaching estimating? So to make an addend the next 10 you'd say 40 instead of 37? so the estimated answer would be 55? I don't know. this is just a guess.

  • If the answer is 52 then that is straight up addition and not estimation. This iss a very confusing question and I am sorry but I do not know what to tell you.
    Do they have a homework hotline?
