Estimation - In the Ballpark
Glowla has created this weird machine just for you to play with! Here's the deal: The machine will show you a bunch of numbers. You need to type in an estimate of what those numbers would add up to. Sure, if you had all the time in the world, you could add the numbers together, but that's the hitch-- you only have 60 seconds to give your estimate! The secret to solving this puzzle is to round the numbers before adding them together.
