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.

use a calculator dude

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