Batters up Baseball

Walt: Using tidy numbers

The answer for this is 340

This week I have been using tidy numbers.I used tidy numbers to work this problem out.
I first did 85 x 4= which then you have to figure out which is the closest number to 85 and you take away or you add. I took away . Then I did 80 x 4= ( 8 x 4 ) = 320. There’s
5 left. 5 x 4 = 20 add it all up 320 + 20 = 340 there’s the answer. I want to learn how to do algebra.

HI Claudia, I didn't really understand how you solve this problem. If I had to work this out I would of used standard algorithm because I understand it better. What did you find difficult in this game?
