Approximate size of the answer in a division fact

Domain numeracy Parent Estimate products and quotients and verify using approximation; adding partial products, multiplication in mind

Approximate size of the answer in a division fact: 6 ÷ 12 = 2 or 68 ÷ 17 = 34, or when dividing 3,208 by 8, a student who gets a quotient of 41 is unlikely to realize his/her error. If a student were to see the digit 3 as 3,000, or the digits 3 and 2 as 3,200 instead of 32, they would have realized that 8 can go into 3,200 four hundred times as opposed to 41 times.
