Ashley starts with 12 marbles.She buys 25 More.How many marbles does Ashley end with?

Ashley has 12 marbles but decides to get 25 more,In this case we need to add.Ok,We firstly add the 12 to the 25.We split the 12 in tens and ones the 1 in 12 is a ten so it is converted into 10.The 2 in 12 is a one so it stays the same as always.This rule still applies to the next number we are splitting.So we need to split the 25 in tens and ones! The 2 in the 25 is a ten so it's converted to a 20 and the 5 in the 25 is as always a one! This means the 5 is just a normal 5.Now we have to add the tens: 20+10=30 Now adding the Ones:2+5=7 Adding all of it: 30+7=37! (That's the answer)

Kelly has 21 oranges.Stephanie has 27 oranges.If Stephanie gives all of her oranges to Kelly,how many oranges will Kelly have?

As we know the 2 in 21 is not a normal 2,It's a 10 so this means the 2 is converted into a 20! As for the other number,1 in 21 is still the same as always because its a one not a ten! This rule still applies to the next number,the 2 in the 27 is not 2 it's a 20 because the number in front is always a ten! As for the other number the 7 remains to be 7 because it is a One! Now we need to add them together! Adding the Tens : 20+20=40 Adding the Ones:1+7=8 Now it's time to add the 40 and 8.In this case it shows the complete answer which is: 48!

Joseph has 25 marbles. Julia has 28 marbles. If Julia gives all of her marbles to Joseph, how many marbles will Joseph have?

Ok,Joseph had 25 marbles but then he gained 28 marbles because Julia gave her own marbles to him.This equation leads to adding! 25 is splitted in tens and ones,the 2 in the 25 is a ten so it is converted into 20.The 5 in 25 is a one so it is converted in 5,The one's stay the same number because they are ones!.In this case this rule goes out to the other number,28.The 2 is a ten so it’s converted to 20!.The 8 in 28 is converted into 8 because it's a one! If we add all the ones together it would add up to 13,This means we have to carry the ten in the 13 to the next number which is the tens! Ok,Now were left with 3 because we carried the 10 on the next number.Now it's time to add the tens! 20+20=40 but remember we carried a ten so that ten has to come and join this equation.We now have to add the 10 to 40 and we now have 50 as our answer.Now we need to add the 50 and the 3,This leads to the answer so I'm 99% it’s the right answer.The Answer Is:53!

Harry starts with 30 bottle caps. 15 are eaten by a hippopotamus. How many bottle caps does Harry end with?

30-15=? What is 15+15? Its 30! So 30-15=15 because when you add the two 15’s together it makes the number thirty but when we subtract one of the 15’s from the thirty it still would lead to: 15! (If that makes sense)

Mary starts with 53 crayons. She gives 12 to Cynthia. How many crayons does Mary end with?

Like always we should know that in 53 the five is not actually a five or as other people pronounce it,it's not a one! The 5 of the 53 is actually a ten so it's actually 50! And like the 12 it has the same rule! The 1 is not a one it's a ten-10! So 50-10=40! In 53 there is also another number,the 3,this number is not a ten it's a one so it stays the same! This rule also goings to the 12,the 2 is not a ten it's a one so it's still the same number! So 3-2=1 If we add all the numbers which is the answer to the equation the answer would be most likely be 41 because 50-10=40 & 3-2=1 and when we add the 40 and the 1 together the answer would show up as: 41!

There are 27 stickers in a box. Douglas takes 9 stickers. How many are left?

If you know your 9 times tables then you can solve this! Like normal 27 is in the 9 time tables,9x3=27! But when we take nine away from the 27 it’s basically going back to 9x2! And 9x2=18 So the Answer is: 18

Each bag of lollies costs $3.00. How much do 25 bags cost?

This is a multiplication equation so we need to times the 25 to the 3! What is 25x3? Its 75.In this equation you also need to split the 25 in ones and tens,the 2 is a ten so it's a 20! So 20 times 3 equals to 60! Now we need to times the one to the 3,The 5 in 25 is a one so we need to times 5 to 3 and the answer to that is 15! Now we need to add the answers we got which is 60 and 15! What is 60+15? Its: 75!

I used addition and added the 25 all together 3 times! (It wasn’t a good strategy for me because I should be focusing on higher strategies but I wanted to do more strategies! So forgive me)

Each child has 8 cards. If there are 22 children, how many cards are there in total?

As always we have to split 22 in tens and ones! The front number is the ten so it's converted to 20! The back number is a one so it stays the same number! 20x8=160 and 2x8=16 If we add 160 and 16 all together It would lead to the answer! The answer is:176!

Kevin went to the store 8 times last month. He buys 8 apples each time he goes to the store. How many apples did Kevin buy last month?

In this equation you need to use your time tables! So since Kevin went to the store 8 times last month and bought 8 apples each time he goes,this means he went and bought 8 apples each day in the time he went to the store last month.So this means we have to go 8x8! What is 8x8? Its:64 So the answer is 64!

Annie has 45 Skittles in little lolly bags. If there are 5 bags, how many Skittles must go in each bag?

This is also a multiplication equation! There are 5 bags and there are 45 skittle packets that need to be organized! What we can do is use our 5 times tables and put enough packets of skittles in those 5 packets! Now we need to use our time tables! What is 5x_=45? Its:9!

There are 3 children and 27 apples. If the apples are divided equally among the children, how many does each child get?

We need to divide the 27 apples among 3 children! What can we do? In the 3 times tables there is 3 times something that equals to 27! What could it be? It’s:9 3x9=27 or 27 divided by 9=3!

There are 49 oranges in Shirley's orange collection. If the oranges are organized into 7 groups, how big is each group?

If you know your 7 times tables you can figure this out! So Shirley has 49 oranges in her orange collection but we need to find out how big is each group if it’s organized in 7 groups! Like normal you can identify that 49 is in the 7 times tables! So what is 7 times something equals to 49? Its:6! The answer is 6!
