Q:
# Explain how to estimate the quotient using compatible numbers. 27 2/3 ÷3 9/10

Accepted Solution

A:

The first fraction is between 27 and 28, closer to 28. The second fraction is between 3 and 4, closer to 4. Compatible numbers in division are numbers that can be divided mentally. 28 divided by 4 is 7. The quotient will be around 7.
