Question

# There are 479 girls and 729 boys in a school. Estimate the total number of students in the school.

- 1200
- 1255
- 1300
- 1250

Hint:

### We have to find the estimated total of students in school if number of girls is 479 and number of boys is 729. Firstly we will round off both number to nearest highest number place, in this question we will round off to nearest hundred. Further we will add both rounded number of boys and girls. the number obtained will be the estimated total of students in school.

## The correct answer is: 1200

### Rounding off the number of girls = 500

Rounding off the number of boys = 700

Total number of students

=500+700

=1200

So, the estimated total of students in school is 1200.
