Janelle is training[br]for a road race.
0:00:02.840,0:00:06.090
Her pedometer tracks how[br]far she runs every day.
0:00:06.090,0:00:08.350
Here are the pedometer readings[br]for the past four
0:00:08.350,0:00:13.190
days: on Saturday, she went[br]3.89 miles; Sunday, 5.1;
0:00:13.190,0:00:18.190
Monday, 10.21; Tuesday, 3.35.
0:00:18.190,0:00:21.750
Estimate the total distance she[br]ran over the four days,
0:00:21.750,0:00:23.640
and then calculate[br]the exact amount.
0:00:23.640,0:00:26.460
Let's estimate first. So I'm[br]just going to round them to
0:00:26.460,0:00:27.380
the nearest mile.
0:00:27.380,0:00:30.190
So 3.89, let's round[br]it up to 4 miles.
0:00:30.190,0:00:32.600
And I'm doing that because in[br]the tenths place, we have an
0:00:32.600,0:00:34.730
8, which is 5 or greater.
0:00:34.730,0:00:38.370
So let's just make that[br]roughly 4 miles.
0:00:38.370,0:00:39.770
Let's make this 5.1.
0:00:39.770,0:00:43.040
We round that down because[br]this 1 is less than 5.
0:00:43.040,0:00:45.350
So let's make this 5 miles.
0:00:45.350,0:00:50.960
10.21, let's make that[br]10 miles because
0:00:50.960,0:00:51.950
2 would round down.
0:00:51.950,0:00:53.480
It's less than 5.
0:00:53.480,0:00:57.470
And 3.35, let's make that 3[br]miles, because 3 is less than
0:00:57.470,0:00:58.740
5, so we'd round down.
0:00:58.740,0:01:00.610
So that is 3 miles.
0:01:00.610,0:01:04.090
And if we were to add them[br]up, 4 plus 5 is 9.
0:01:04.090,0:01:07.110
9 plus 10 is 19.
0:01:07.110,0:01:11.040
19 plus 3 is 22.
0:01:11.040,0:01:20.040
So my estimate is that she ran[br]22 miles over the four days.
0:01:20.040,0:01:21.080
That's my estimate.
0:01:21.080,0:01:24.200
Now let's figure out the exact[br]amount that she ran.
0:01:24.200,0:01:25.670
Let me scroll down[br]a little bit.
0:01:25.670,0:01:32.940
So we're going to have to add[br]3.89 to 5.1-- and remember,
0:01:32.940,0:01:34.870
when you're adding decimals,[br]you want to line up the
0:01:34.870,0:01:44.390
decimal-- 10.21 and[br]then finally 3.35.
0:01:44.390,0:01:47.900
And let's add all of these up.
0:01:47.900,0:01:52.500
Now we'll start in the[br]hundredths place.
0:01:52.500,0:01:56.820
There's nothing here, so 9 plus[br]nothing plus 1 is 10,
0:01:56.820,0:01:59.340
plus 5 is 15.
0:01:59.340,0:02:04.910
So let's write the 5, and then[br]carry, or regroup, the 1.
0:02:04.910,0:02:06.360
Let me do this in[br]another color.
0:02:06.360,0:02:10.030
1 plus 8 is 9.
0:02:10.030,0:02:12.090
9 plus 1 is 10.
0:02:12.090,0:02:14.190
10 plus 2 is 12.
0:02:14.190,0:02:17.240
12 plus 3 is 15.
0:02:17.240,0:02:18.750
Put the 5 down.
0:02:18.750,0:02:21.045
Carry, or regroup, the 1.
0:02:21.045,0:02:22.810
1 plus 3 is 4.
0:02:22.810,0:02:25.140
4 plus 5 is 9.
0:02:25.140,0:02:26.790
9 plus 0 is still 9.
0:02:26.790,0:02:33.480
9 plus 3 is 12.
0:02:33.480,0:02:33.960
Write the 2.
0:02:33.960,0:02:35.800
Regroup this 1 right here.
0:02:35.800,0:02:38.530
I'll do it out here just so it's[br]not part of any of these
0:02:38.530,0:02:42.340
numbers, and then[br]1 plus 1 is 2.
0:02:42.340,0:02:43.770
And then we have to remember[br]the decimal
0:02:43.770,0:02:46.010
sitting right over there.
0:02:46.010,0:02:52.760
So the exact distance she[br]ran was 22.55 miles.
0:02:52.760,0:02:54.160
So our estimate wasn't[br]too bad.
0:02:54.160,0:02:55.630
It was 22 miles.
0:02:55.630,0:02:58.760
We got reasonably close, within[br]about little over a
0:02:58.760,0:03:00.310
half a mile.
