Question

# The sum of 730 + 450 using front – end estimation is______.

- 1000
- 1100
- 1200
- 1300

Hint:

### The first-end estimation of a number means rounding off the number to the nearest hundred/tens/thousands whatever be the place value of the leading digit.

## The correct answer is: 1100

### Here, we are required to find the sum of 730 and 450 using front-end estimation.

Firstly, we see the place value of the leading digit in both the numbers. The place value of 7 in 730 is hundreds and the place value of 4 in 450 is also hundred. So, we round off both the number to nearest hundred.

For 730,since the tens place digit, 3 is less than 5. So, we have to round down.

So, 730 rounded down gives 700.

Now for 450, since the tens place digit is 5. So it has to be rounded up.

So, 450 rounded up gives 500.

Now, we have

730 + 450

=700 + 500

=1200

Hence the correct answer is C

Front-end estimation means rounding off a number to the nearest place value of the leading digit of the number.

### Round the number 5432 to the nearest hundred.

For rounding off to the nearest hundred, we can also look at the number formed by the tens place digit and one place digit. If the number formed is less than 50,we round down and if the number is 50 or more we round up.
