    At birth, one lion cub weighs 3 3/4 pounds. Another cub in the same litter weighs 2 5/8 pounds. How much more does the heavier cub weigh?

    1) To calculate the difference in weights, find: 3 3/4 – 2 5/8
    2) 3 3/4 & 3 6/8 ^Write 3/4 as 6/8
    4) -2 5/8 & -2 5/8 = 1 1/8
    Check for Reasonableness: Round each mixed number: 3 3/4 ≈ 4;2 5/8 ≈ 3.
    Then subtract: 4 – 3 = 1.
    The answer 1 1/8 is close to the estimate.
    So, the answer is reasonable.
