Janelle is training
• 0:03 - 0:06
Her pedometer tracks how
far she runs every day.
• 0:06 - 0:08
for the past four
• 0:08 - 0:13
days: on Saturday, she went
3.89 miles; Sunday, 5.1;
• 0:13 - 0:18
Monday, 10.21; Tuesday, 3.35.
• 0:18 - 0:22
Estimate the total distance she
ran over the four days,
• 0:22 - 0:24
and then calculate
the exact amount.
• 0:24 - 0:26
Let's estimate first. So I'm
just going to round them to
• 0:26 - 0:27
the nearest mile.
• 0:27 - 0:30
So 3.89, let's round
it up to 4 miles.
• 0:30 - 0:33
And I'm doing that because in
the tenths place, we have an
• 0:33 - 0:35
8, which is 5 or greater.
• 0:35 - 0:38
So let's just make that
roughly 4 miles.
• 0:38 - 0:40
Let's make this 5.1.
• 0:40 - 0:43
We round that down because
this 1 is less than 5.
• 0:43 - 0:45
So let's make this 5 miles.
• 0:45 - 0:51
10.21, let's make that
10 miles because
• 0:51 - 0:52
2 would round down.
• 0:52 - 0:53
It's less than 5.
• 0:53 - 0:57
And 3.35, let's make that 3
miles, because 3 is less than
• 0:57 - 0:59
5, so we'd round down.
• 0:59 - 1:01
So that is 3 miles.
• 1:01 - 1:04
And if we were to add them
up, 4 plus 5 is 9.
• 1:04 - 1:07
9 plus 10 is 19.
• 1:07 - 1:11
19 plus 3 is 22.
• 1:11 - 1:20
So my estimate is that she ran
22 miles over the four days.
• 1:20 - 1:21
That's my estimate.
• 1:21 - 1:24
Now let's figure out the exact
amount that she ran.
• 1:24 - 1:26
Let me scroll down
a little bit.
• 1:26 - 1:33
So we're going to have to add
3.89 to 5.1-- and remember,
• 1:33 - 1:35
you want to line up the
• 1:35 - 1:44
decimal-- 10.21 and
then finally 3.35.
• 1:44 - 1:48
And let's add all of these up.
• 1:48 - 1:52
Now we'll start in the
hundredths place.
• 1:52 - 1:57
There's nothing here, so 9 plus
nothing plus 1 is 10,
• 1:57 - 1:59
plus 5 is 15.
• 1:59 - 2:05
So let's write the 5, and then
carry, or regroup, the 1.
• 2:05 - 2:06
Let me do this in
another color.
• 2:06 - 2:10
1 plus 8 is 9.
• 2:10 - 2:12
9 plus 1 is 10.
• 2:12 - 2:14
10 plus 2 is 12.
• 2:14 - 2:17
12 plus 3 is 15.
• 2:17 - 2:19
Put the 5 down.
• 2:19 - 2:21
Carry, or regroup, the 1.
• 2:21 - 2:23
1 plus 3 is 4.
• 2:23 - 2:25
4 plus 5 is 9.
• 2:25 - 2:27
9 plus 0 is still 9.
• 2:27 - 2:33
9 plus 3 is 12.
• 2:33 - 2:34
Write the 2.
• 2:34 - 2:36
Regroup this 1 right here.
• 2:36 - 2:39
I'll do it out here just so it's
not part of any of these
• 2:39 - 2:42
numbers, and then
1 plus 1 is 2.
• 2:42 - 2:44
And then we have to remember
the decimal
• 2:44 - 2:46
sitting right over there.
• 2:46 - 2:53
So the exact distance she
ran was 22.55 miles.
• 2:53 - 2:54
So our estimate wasn't
• 2:54 - 2:56
It was 22 miles.
• 2:56 - 2:59
We got reasonably close, within
• 2:59 - 3:00
half a mile.
• 3:00 - 3:01
