What is the best estimate for the sum of 3/8 and 1/2​

Answers

Estimating is an educated guess, so 3/8 is just less than half, and 1/12 is just a bit more than 0.  So you could estimate that 3/8 + 1/12 = roughly 1/2

 if you add 3/8 and 1/12 you get 11/24

The best estimate is 11/24.

Step-by-step explanation:

did it

3/8 + 1/12
= 36/96 + 8/96
= 44/96
= 11/24
3/8 + 1/12 = 11/24

Just add straight across
3/8 + 1/12
LCD is 24
9/24 + 2/24
= 11/24 or 0.46
10/24 or 5/12 is the answer
1/2. You would round 3/8 to 1/2 to 0. Then you add 1/2 to 0 and you get your answer.
1/2 I think because 3/8 goes into 1/2 and 1/12 is 0. I used benchmarking by the way

The anwser is 7/8 because you can change 1/2 to 4/8 and 4/8+3/8 is 7/8

The anwser is 7/8 because you can change 1/2 to 4/8 and 4/8+3/8 is 7/8
