Best Answer

The best way to estimate a quotient using compatible numbers is to first understand how compatible numbers work. They are numbers that are close in value to the actual numbers and are easily added, subtracted or divided.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What do they mean when they say estimate each quotient write the compatible numbers you used?

Suppose you are asked to evaluate a quotient like 923/462. You have several options. You could choose 900 and 500 as compatible numbers for the two given numbers and then your estimated quotient would be 900/500 = 1.8. Or You could choose 920 and 460 as the compatible numbers for them and then your estimated quotient would be 920/460 = 2.0. So the question is essentially, what compatible numbers did you pick and using them, what was the quotient. There is no correct answer to picking compatible numbers. Any estimation is a trade-off between simplicity and accuracy. Incidentally, a more accurate answer is 1.9978 (approx), but even that is not perfect!

Explain whether it is easier to estimate the product 13.72 x 47.28 by using compatible numbers or by rounding each factor to the nearest whole number?

Compatible numbers would be easier. Rounding gives you 14 x 47. Compatible numbers could be 13 x 50 which would be closer to the actual product.
