Answer

Estimate: $700; Exact: $680

Work Step by Step

To estimate, we round 680,000 to the nearest hundred-thousand (700,000) and we do not need to round 1000. To estimate the money each employee will receive we divide 700,000 / 1000 = 700. To find the exact number, we divide 680,000 / 1000 = 680.
