How Do You Estimate a Quotient Using Compatible Numbers?
Learn how to do approximations to find a quotient. Given some large numbers to divide, how can this problem be tackled? It's often a good idea to do an approximation first as this can help to be in the ballpark in finding the solution....

Estimate between Which Two Whole Numbers a Fractional Quotient Will Lie
Dividing whole numbers also requires an idea of where the reasonable answer will lie. The video uses a number line and mental math to determine an estimate of what the final quotient would be if you finished the problem.
