Transcript Compensation in Addition — Let's Practice!

Razzi says get a piece of paper and a pencil ready (...) Because today we're going to practice... Compensation in addition! It's time to begin! Compensation is something given in return for something. Remember, when using compensation in addition, whatever you add to one number you MUST do the opposite for the other number. Let's practice! If Mr. Squeaks has twenty-nine blue flowers and twenty-five red ones, how many does he have in total? Start by choosing which number to make friendlier, or easier to add. Don't forget, whatever you do to one number you MUST do the opposite to the other. Here, you can take one from twenty-five and add it to twenty-nine to make thirty. Did you also get fifty-four? Let's tackle the next problem! If Imani has thirty-four screws and twenty-seven nails, how many are there all together? Don't forget, whatever you do to one number you MUST do the opposite to the other. Here, you can take one from twenty-seven and add it to thirty-four to make thirty-five. Did you also get sixty-one? Let's tackle the next problem! If Mr. Squeaks has fifty-eight red marshmallows and thirty-two blue ones, how many does he have in all? Don't forget, whatever you do to one number you MUST do the opposite to the other. Here, you can take two from thirty-two and add it to fifty-eight to make sixty. Did you also get ninety? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!
