  1. Dear Team

    Your description is pretty comprehensive and clear :D

    Under "Approximation and Estimation", please suggest when you would use the skills learnt here? Under what situation/circumstances you would suggest we use this skill/knowledge and when we should not apply such skills?

    Please elaborate in the same post.

    Cheers!
