We will learn how to solve different types of word problems in estimating the sum.

To solve a word math we need to carefully read each word and carefully choose numbers from the question to solve it.

**1.** Aaron bought 557 bags of brown rice and 368 bags of white rice. Find the total number of bags Aaron bought.

Number of bags of brown rice = 557 Number of bags of white rice = 368 Total number of pockets = 557 + 368 |

Therefore, the total number of bags Aaron bought is 925.

**2.** A library has a large collection of books. There are 180 English books, 155 French books and 250 scientific books. How many books are there in total?

Number of English books = 180 Number of French books = 155 Number of science books = 250 Total number of books = 180 + 155 + 250 |

Hence the total number is 585.
