#Decide if the estimation is appropriate. 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.jpgcenter]]

#*Examples of situations that favor estimations include planning casual events (roughly gauging supplies needed), expressing an idea verbally (getting the idea across without the nittygritty 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.jpgcenter]]
