550.

You're supposed to estimate it. 50 x 500 = 25,000, which is close to 25,214, and 47<50, so I'd estimate the number to be somewhere higher like 550.

No right answer. Mine's as right as anyone's.

• When you estimate, round the numbers out before you divide.

25,214 could be rounded to 25,200 and 47 can be rounded to 50 for example.

Now 25,200/50 is much easier

25,200/50=540 which is an estimate of 25,214/47

For a rough estimate make these round numbers.

25,200/50

50 goes into 200 four times. It goes into 1,000 twenty times. 25x20=500. 500+4=504

The actual answer is 536.468 so we were reasonably close.

• it is according to what place you need to estimate. The answer is approx. 536.468, so I would estimate approximately 500 or 540.

• estimating requires rounding up or down, so:

25000/50 =500

hope that helps

• 25,214/47 = 536.46808510638297872340425531915

So roughly 540 is a close estimation

• 530, if you round to nearest tenth.

500, if you round to nearest hundredth.

• Oh, thats easy. 26,000/50= 520 :)

Source(s): I know it
• use a calculator dude

just guess something close to the answer after you know it (ex: 520 instead of 536.468...)
