Direction: What approximate value should come in the place of question mark (?) in the following questions?
1
120.09 ÷ 14.88 × 23.03 – 20.94 × 3.96 = ?
» Explain it
A
? = 120.09 ÷ 14.88 × 23.03 – 20.94 × 3.96

≈ 120 ÷ 15 × 23 – 21 × 4

≈ 8 × 23 – 21 × 4

≈ 184 – 84 ≈ 100

Hence, option A is correct.

2
157.03 × 17.004 – ? ÷ 0.15 = 639.98 × 0.249
» Explain it
B
157.03 × 17.004 – ? ÷ 0.15 = 639.98 × 0.249

⇒  157 × 17 – ? ÷ 0.15 = 640 × 0.25

⇒  2669 – ? ÷ 0.15 = 640 ×  1  = 160
4

⇒  ? = (2669 – 160) × 0.15

⇒  ? = 2509 × 0.15 = 376.35  ≈  375

Hence, option B is correct.

3
624  ×  170  × 12.489 ÷ 51.96 = ?
» Explain it
C
? =  624  ×  170  × 12.489 ÷ 51.96

? ≈ 25 × 13 × 12.5 ÷ 52

? ≈ 25 × 13 × 12.5 ×  1  ≈ 25 × 3.125 ≈ 78
52


Hence, option C is correct.

4
839 ÷ 23.99 + 523 ÷ ? + 135.94 – 101.03 = 105
» Explain it
D
839 ÷ 23.99 + 523 ÷ ? + 135.94 – 101.03 = 105

In approximation,

840 ÷ 24 + 523 ÷ ? + 136 – 101 = 105

35 + 523 ÷ ? + 136 – 101 = 105

523 ÷ ? = 105 – 136 + 101 – 35 = 35

? = 523 ÷ 35 ≈ 15

Hence, option D is correct.

5
325 + 440 × 8 – 841 + 290120 × 12 = ?
» Explain it
A
? = 325 + 440 × 8 – 841 + 290120 × 12

≈ 18 + 21 × 8 – 29 + 17 – 11 × 12

≈ 18 + 168 – 29 + 17 – 132  ≈  42  ≈  40

Hence, option A is correct.
