5. Estimate each value, to one decimal place. Check your answer with a calculator.
a) square root of 14
My guess was 3.7 and when I checked the calculator, its 3.7. I found my answer using a number line.
_9_-> 14 <- _16_
b) square root of 86
My guess was 9.3 and when I checked it on the calculator it was 9.2.
_81_-> 86 <- _100_
c) square root of 136
My guess was 11.8 and when I checked it on the calculator it was 11.6.
_121_-> 136 <- _144_
12. While shopping online, ji Hon finds a square rug with an area of 11m2. He needs to know if it will fit in his 4m x 5m bedroom.
a) Estimate the side length of the rug, to one decimal place.
b) check your estimate with a calculator.
c) Will the rug fit? Explain.
Yes, the rug will fit in his room because the side lengths of his room is 4m x 5m, that would equals 20m2 and the rug's side length is 3.3m x 3.3m, that would equal to 11m2. The are of his room is greater than the area of the rug.
