BSL Maths Glossary - estimate - Example

Subject level: Foundation


Estimate: for example let's imagine I bought this candle - quite a tall thin candle and I lit it. I said, "How long do you estimate it will take the candle to burn out. It's 11 o'clock in the morning now. When do you think it will die out?"
"I estimate it will be 5 oclock."
"Oh you think 5 - I think 10 oclock tonight."
