Summary of key concepts
Estimation (
[link] )
Estimation is the process of determining an expected value of a computation.
Estimation by rounding (
[link] )
The
rounding technique estimates the result of a computation by rounding the numbers involved in the computation to one or two nonzero digits. For example,
$\text{512}+\text{896}$ can be estimated by
$\text{500}+\text{900}=\text{1,400}$ .
When several numbers are close to one particular number, they are said to
cluster near that particular number.
Estimation by clustering (
[link] )
The
clustering technique of estimation can be used when
 there are more than two numbers to be added, and
 clustering occurs.
For example,
$\text{31}+\text{62}+\text{28}+\text{59}$ can be estimated by
$(\text{2}\cdot \text{30})+(\text{2}\cdot \text{60})=\text{60}+\text{120}=\text{180}$
Distributive property (
[link] )
The
distributive property is a characteristic of numbers that involves both addition and multiplication. For example,
$3(\text{4}+\text{6})=\text{3}\cdot \text{4}+\text{3}\cdot \text{6}=\text{12}+\text{18}=\text{30}$
Estimation using the distributive property (
[link] )
The
distributive property can be used to obtain exact results for a multiplication.
For example,
$\text{15}\cdot \text{23}=\text{15}\cdot (\text{20}+\text{3})=\text{15}\cdot \text{20}+\text{15}\cdot \text{3}=\text{300}+\text{45}=\text{345}$
Estimation by rounding fractions (
[link] )
Estimation by rounding fractions commonly rounds fractions to
$\frac{1}{4}$ ,
$\frac{1}{2}$ ,
$\frac{3}{4}$ , 0, and 1.
For example,
$\frac{5}{\text{12}}+\frac{5}{\text{16}}$ can be estimated by
$\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{3}{4}$

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
