Description
"Rounding off. Sizing up...Every day we make simple estimations about time, distance, probabilities, and other familiar number concepts. But what about the really big and really small numbers? Can you really dig your way out of prison with just a spoon? Health issues aside, can a student really afford to live on just ramen noodles for a year? In this book, the author poses fun and far-out problems to demonstrate the user-friendly Fermi method of approximations.
