A simple example to estimate money is given below.
Suppose, you have $ 45. You need a notebook, crayon pencils, and candies. The cost of the notebook is $ 9, the cost of the crayon pencil is $ 18 and cost of the candies is $ 12. Check if you have enough money to get all these items. To check, we first need to round amount up and down. We have learnt these concepts in rounding numbers.

The first two amounts can be rounded up and the last amount can be rounded down to the nearest dollars. $ 9 is rounded to $ 10, $ 18 to $ 20 and $ 12 to $ 10. Quickly sum up these values. The approximate total is $ 40. We have enough money to get all the three items.
Actual cost is ($ 9 + $ 18 + $ 12) = $ 39. Your estimate is right. Use this example to solve various other real life problems involving money. Make your calculations easier.
