All these estimations have a use, and a place where they are appropriate,

As a college math professor once admonished me, if I have a calculator at
my disposal there's no reason to round off any intermediate result.

I use the calipers to measure, and a calculator to convert. I don't trust
any of my brain math skills anymore. I was good at it until I discovered
computers.
