Hi there!
29.92 + 39.03 = ?
Let's estimate it with the first digits only:
20.00 + 30.00 = 50.00
Now, we make the adjustment... add based on the second digits:
Add 9.92 + 9.03, which is like 10.00 + 10.00 = 20.00
Add that to the 50, giving:
70.00
Let me know if you have any questions. If not, thanks for pressing "Accept".

What if the question says  Estimate using frontend digits. Would I get the same answer?

replied 9 years ago.
No, you would not get the same answer. The adjustment is crucial to get the answer of 70.
If you only use the front end digits:
29.92 + 39.03 = ?
Let's estimate it with the first digits only:
20.00 + 30.00 = 50.00
We don't make any adjustments, so that's the answer:
50.00
Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, thanks for pressing "Accept".

Expert:

replied 9 years ago.
Yes, if you use adjustment, that's the first answer I gave: 70.
If you don't have adjustment, that's the second answer I gave: 50.
I want to make sure you completely understand this, so let me know if you have any other questions before you press "Accept". Thanks!
