Subject: Re: Front-end estimation


Any of the three answers you suggested is correct. The further you go
to the right the more your answer resembles the exact answer. I think
that the first meaning of "front-end" estimation is to compute only
the highest place values, so your first answer would be accurate to
that definition.
