Approximation-"The answer is approximately 5"Estimation-"The equation 3.1+5.2 is estimated to 3+5 and the answer is approximately 8"
The context for approximation is not clear;The example for estimation, the first part is clear :)However, note that 3.1 + 5.2 is not an equation, it's just an expression.
The approximation of a packet of meat is about 200 grams, so the cost is estimated to be $5
The approximation of "what" ? (you've missed out the context though the unit tells us what it is).The cost part, you'll have to elaborate more.
The approximate weight of the chicken is estimated to be 4 kg.
Can only use either "approximate" or "estimated". Which one to use?
The term approximation is roughly near the real answer and estimation is rounding off.
Construct a sentence to illustrate this.
approximation is a rough idea of the answer which you are unsure of and estimation is like is an answer near the correct of the answer.
Need to elaborate further.Try using an example to illustrate.
The slice of fish is approximately 3kg. The price is estimated to be about $3
The first part... be clearer, mention the context (i.e. you are talking about the weight).The "estimate" part is not clear. Try to elaborate.
The cost of the mac book cost approximately $3000.The cost of the car is estimated to be around $340 000
Need to elaborate further. It has not quite 'bring out' the meaning of the word.
Approximately: The marathon is approximately 5 clicks.Estimate:We need to estimate the amount of money we earn monthly.
Approximation- The number 9x4/8=4.5=round up ^ 5. *4.5=5* (approximately)Estimation-An estimation is a rough guess of any number close to the original answer. For e.g.: When someone is scheduled to arrive at 5:40, they estimate to be at the location in about 10 min, FOR EXAMPLE.
Can't quite figure out the expression/ equation that you put down for "approximation".For the example you gave for estimation, actually, it's more like "Approximation"
That gold bar is approximately 1 kilogram!The estimated price must be very high!
The first part looks ok (approximation).Whereas the estimation part needs to be elaborated further.
The chicken is approximately 6 kilograms it is estimated to be $2
The context of the "chicken" needs to be written out.How do you estimate the price?
The computer is estimated to be 1000$The basketball is approximated about 500g
From the 2 sentences, we can't tell the difference between "estimation" and "approximation".On the other hand, note that when we say "One thousand dollars", mathematically, we write as $1000
Approximation can be used in real life for prices of products like when they round it off in your receipt an in your total amount of money spent. Estimation is quite similar to approximation, except that you do not know the actual amount and rely on your thoughts to estimate it.
Estimate : We need to estimate the number of tiles needed when building a house.
Approximation-The number of chickens in the pen is 50.Estimation-Estimate the product of 18412x22394?
Approximation & estimation e.g. there are approximately 200 oranges in that box the price is estimated to be about $450
