#Decide if the estimation is appropriate.Bro  Estimating a fraction will give you the gist of the fraction. However, you'll seldom guess the exact answer with it. If you only need a general idea of the answer, estimations are helpful. However, if you need to give an exact answer, solve your equation with exact measurements. A good estimation will convey the general idea across quickly, and won't attempt to pass itself off as an exact answer.[[Image:Estimate Fractions Step 1 Version 3.jpg|center]]

#*Examples of situations that favor estimations include planning casual events (roughly gauging supplies needed), expressing an idea verbally (getting the idea across without the nitty-gritty details) or some cooking situations like stews, where exact measurements aren't needed in the final product.

#Simplify the fractions where possible.<ref>https://ift.tt/2GXpU3u> Fractions will always be easier to deal with mentally if you simply them to their lowest common denominators. A fraction listed as 4/8, for example, can be expressed as 2/4 or 1/2. These are different ways of expressing the exact same fraction. It's a good idea to simplify your fractions however possible in order to make your estimating easier. Find a number you can divide the top and bottom half of a fraction by equally. Dividing them by the same number will reduce the size of the numbers, while keeping the proportions intact.[[Image:Estimate Fractions Step 2 Version 3.jpg|center]]
