Quick way to determine which runway to use?

Quick way to determine which runway to use?

Let’s say I call up WX and have the wind direction and I know the runway headings from my airport charts and the pattern is empty. Here is what I do to determine the runway I am going to be using for landing.

Example:

Runways are 3 and 21
Wind is 281° which rounds to 28

I then do simple math taking the smaller number from the larger number and if its less then or qual to 9 thats the runway I am going to use. If not the other runway is it.

Example
28(wind)-21(runway)= 7
28(wind)- 3(runway)= 25

I’m going to use Runway 21..
