- to get close to the answer.

- is to make the problem easier.

- is to know what to expect from our calculations.

1.36 L of O.J. (Orange Juice) and there's 4 of you.

a) estimate how much you each get.

b) calculate how much you each get.

2.0 divided by 4 would equal 0.5 and that is 1/2 over estimating.

1.0 divided by 4 would equal 0.25 and that is 1/4 under estimating.

1.3 divided by 4 would equal 0.3 (0.36)

1.6 divided by 4 would equal 0.4 (0.46)

or you can use long division :

**0.34**
