Extensive Definition

Estimation is the calculated approximation of a result which is usable even if input data may be incomplete, uncertain, or noisy.
In mathematics, approximation or estimation typically means finding upper or lower bounds of a quantity that cannot readily be computed precisely and is also an educated guess . While initial results may be unusably uncertain, recursive input from output, can purify results to be approximately accurate, certain, complete and noise-free.
