Approximations are estimate in Amount, Numbers, Distances etc. that are almost correct, but not exact. It is a unique method of counting to nearest wholes, which might be Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Weights, Distances, Time and so many other values.

Example 1:

Correct 4726.6282 to the nearest
(a) thousand, (b) hundred, (c) ten (d) whole number, (e) tenth, (f) hundredth, (g) thousandth

Solution:
(a) 4726.6282 = 5000 to the nearest thousand.

(b) 4726.6282 = 4700 to the nearest hundred.

(c) 4726.6282 = 4730 to the nearest ten.

(d) 4726.6282 = 4727 to the nearest whole number.

(e) 4726.6282 = 4726.6 to the nearest tenth.

(f) 4726.6282 = 4726.63 to the nearest hundredth.

(g) 4726.6282 = 4726.628 to the nearest thousandth.

Example 2:

Correct to nearest hour.
3 hours 10 minutes
= 3 10/60 hours
= 3. 2 hours
= 3 hours ( to the nearest whole number)
