Is estimating the same thing as rounding?

No,Rounding means reducing the digits in a number while trying to keep it's value similar. The result is less accurate, but easier to use.This is the common method* Decide which is the last digit to keep* Increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up)* Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down)Example: 243 rounded to the nearest ten is 240 (because 3 is less than 5)And estimating is a close guess of the actual value, usually with some thought or calculation involved.Example: Alex estimated there were 10,000 sunflowers in the field by counting rows.Hope the definitions and examples helped you understand that estimating and rounding are not the same thing.
