Estimate: 20,000-10,000= 10,000 Exact: 24,276-9887= 14,389

Work Step by Step

In order to estimate 24,276 you round it to the highest place value which is ten-thousands which means it rounds to 20,000 because the 4 in 24,276 is lower than 5. Then round 9887 to 10,000 because the 887 make it closer to 10,000. Then subtract 10,000 from 20,000 which equals 10,000.
