Why Estimate MOM: She gets up at 3am. Then goes to work at 4am, then she gets off at 3pm. Then she estimated how many hours she worked in one day.
Then estimated how many days she worked.

DAD: He gets up at 7am or 6am if he goes in early
for a meeting. Then he gets off at 6pm. Or he
goes in at 2pm and gets off at 12am. So he estimated how many hours a day and how many days he worked.

And they both say you should estimate to see
how close your number will be to your
number model.
