Question 11.

Laura has 7 pears.

She wants to keep 2 pears for herself and give one to each of 6 friends.

Will Laura have enough pears?

Use pictures and words to explain.

Answer:

Laura is not having enough pears to give to her friends.

Number of pears left with her are five, which are less to give to her 6 friends each.

Explanation:

Total number of pears Laura has = 7 or Seven.

Number of pears She wants to keep for herself = 2 or Two.

Number of pears left = Total number of pears Laura has – Number of pears She wants to keep for herself

= 7 or 2

= 5 or Five.

Number of pears She give one to each of 6 friends.

=> Number of pears required to be with her to give to her friends = 1 × 6

=> 6 or Six.

Number of pears left with her are 5, which are less to give to her friends.

Therefore, Laura does not have enough pears to give to her friends.

Question 1.

Marta wins 2 blue ribbons. She wins 4 red ribbons.

How many ribbons does she win in all?

____ ribbons

Answer:

Number of ribbons Marta wins in all = 6 or Six.

_6__ ribbons.

Explanation:

Number of blue ribbons Marta wins = 2 or Two.

Number of red ribbons Marta wins = 4 or Four.

Number of ribbons Marta wins in all = Number of blue ribbons Marta wins + Number of red ribbons Marta wins

= 2 + 4

= 6 or Six.

Marta has 4 red ribbons.

She wins some more red ribbons.

Now she has 7 red ribbons.

How many more red ribbons did Marta win? ___ more red ribbons

Write an equation to show why your answer is correct.

Answer:

3 more red ribbons Marta wins.

_3__ more red ribbons.

Explanation:

Number of red ribbons Marta has = 4 or Four.
