Estimating means giving your best guess. Use the clues to help you make a really good guess before you actually count the number of objects.



Use the clues given.


Look at the number of objects from left to right  - they are going down by one each time.

If there are 5 stars, 4 clubs and 2 ladies then there are likely to be 3 umbrellas.
