a. $${2\times4}$$
b. $${2\times{1\over3}}$$
c. $${2\times4}{1\over3}$$
Estimate the following products. Then solve.
a. $${3\times5{1\over4}}$$
b. $${4\times6{3\over5}}$$
c. $${5\times9{7\over10}}$$
Juliette decided to solve part (a) of Anchor Task #2 by doing the following:
$${3\times2{1\over4} =3\times\left(2+{1\over4}\right)=3\times{9\over4}}$$
Do you agree with Juliette’s strategy? Will it yield the same product?
Which strategy is more efficient, Juliette’s or the distributive property? What about for the other problems in Anchor Task #2?
