Answer

Estimate: 4.3; Exact: 4

Work Step by Step

To estimate, we round 2628 to the nearest thousand (3000) and 657 to the nearest hundred (700). To estimate the number of toys each child will receive, we divide 3000 / 700 = 4.3. To find the exact number of toys per child, we divide 2628 / 657 = 4.
