## Front-End Estimation of Differences

### Front-End Estimation: Learn

Front end estimation mostly produces a closer estimate of sums or differences than the answer produced by adding or subtracting rounded numbers.

How to Estimate a difference by Front-End Estimation:

- Subtract the digits of the two highest place values
- Insert zeros for the other place values

Examples:

- Subtract 7396 - 3745 by estimating them as 7300 - 3700 = 3600.
- Subtract 5196 - 745 by estimating them as 5100 - 700 = 4400.
