44,555 = 5 = 5 45,000

(iii) 86,943; ten thousand

Solution:

86,943 = 6 > 5 90,000

(iv) 50,81,739; lakh

Solution:

50,81,739 = 8 > 5 51,00,000

(v) 33,75,98,482; ten crore

Solution:

33,75,98,482 = 3 < 5 30,00,00,000

4. Estimate the sum of 157826 and 32469 rounded off to the nearest ten thousand .

Solution:

Sum of 157826 and 32469

Actual:

1,57,826

32,469

1,90,295

157826 + 32469 = 1,90,295

Estimated sum = 1,60,000

nearest ten thousand = 30,000

1,90,000

Hence Estimated sum of 157826 and 32469 = 1,90,000

5. Estimate by rounding off each number to the nearest hundred.

(i) 8074 + 4178

(ii) 1768977 + 130589

Solution:

(i) 8074 + 4178

Estimate :

nearest hundred = 8100 + 4200

= 12,300

Hence estimated of 8074 + 4178 = 12,300

(ii) 1768977 + 130589

Estimate :

nearest hundred = 1768977 + 130589

= 1899600

Hence estimated of 1768977 + 130589 = 1899600

6. The population of a city was 43,43,645 in the year 2001 and 46,81,087 in the year 2011. Estimate the increase in population by rounding off to the nearest thousand.

Solution:

Population of city in 2001 = 43,43,645

in 2011 = 46,81,087

Estimate increase in population nearest to thousand is

Population of city in 2011 = 46,81,000

in 2001                              = 43,44,000

3,37,000

Increase in population between 2011 to 2001 is 3,37,000
