Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
By the word "estimate", I'm assuming you can't just use a calculator, so I'll try to do this in my head for you.
What you want is to figure out how big a portion 339 is of 1950.
339 / 1950
I'm going to round these numbers to make them easier to work with. We will get an approximate answer.
350 / 2000
= 35 / 200
= 3.5 / 20
= 0.35 / 2
The closest answer to our approximation is 0.172, therefore I would guess that to be the answer.
Using a calculator to check my answer, 339 / 1950 = 0.173
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
