## PSEB Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers Ex 1.3

1. Estimate each of the following using general rule:

Question (a)
837 + 987
Solution:
While rounding off to hundreds place
837 + 987 = 800 + 1000
= 1800

Question (b)
783 – 427
Solution:
While rounding off to hundreds place
783 – 427 = 800 – 400
= 400

Question (c)
1391 + 2783
Solution:
(i) While rounding off to thousands place
1391 + 2783 = 1000 + 3000
= 4000
(ii) While rounding off to hundreds place
1391 + 2783 = 1400 + 2800
= 4000

Question (d)
28292 – 21496.
Solution:
While rounding off to ten thousands place.
28292 – 21496 = 30000 – 20000
= 10000

2. Estimate the product using general rule:

Question (a)
898 × 785
Solution:
898 rounds off to hundreds place = 900
785 rounds off to hundreds place = 800
Estimated product = 900 × 800
= 720000

Question (b)
9 × 795
Solution:
9 rounding off to tens place = 10
795 rounding off to tens place = 800
Estimated product = 10 × 800
= 8000

Question (c)
(c) 87 × 317
Solution:
87 rounded off to hundreds place = 100
317 rounded off to hundreds place = 300
Estimated product = 90 × 300
= 27000

Question (d)
9250 × 29
Solution:
9250 rounds off to thousands place = 9000
29 rounds off to tens place = 30
Estimated product = 9000 × 30
= 270000

3. Estimate by rounding off to nearest hundred:

Question (a)
439 + 334 + 4317
Solution:
439 rounds off to nearest hundreds = 400
334 rounds off to nearest hundreds = 300
4317 rounds off to nearest hundreds = 4300
Estimated sum = 400 + 300 + 4300 = 5000

Question (b)
108734 – 47599.
Solution:
108734 rounds off to nearest hundreds = 108700
47599 rounds off to nearest hundreds = – 47600
Estimated difference = 61100
