Estimate the sum for the following operation rounded to the nearest 1/4

__Estimate the fraction 1/5 using 1/4 as our benchmark:____Display the fraction bar for 1/5__The lower range is 0 and the upper range is 1/4

The halfway point is denoted below:

Therefore, our range is 0 < 1/8 < 1/4

__Compare our fraction to the halfway point__1/5 ≥ 1/8, we round up to

**1/4**

__Estimate the fraction 6/7 using 1/4 as our benchmark:____Display the fraction bar for 6/7__The lower range is 3/4 and the upper range is 1

The halfway point is denoted below:

Therefore, our range is 3/4 < 7/8 < 1

__Compare our fraction to the halfway point__6/7 < 7/8, we round down to

**3/4**

Estimating, we have 1/4 + 3/4

Our estimated answer is

**1**__Display the fraction bar for 1/1__
