Complete the following. When I take apart nine, I get five and what.

In this question, we’re shown nine apples, and we can see that the group of apples has been taken apart to make two groups. We’re told that one of the parts or one of the groups has five apples, and we have to work out how many apples are in the other part. Let’s record what we know using our part–whole model.

We’re told that there are nine apples. This is the whole amount. We’re told that once the apples have been broken apart, one of the part has five apples and we have to work out how many are in the other part. Let’s count how many apples are in each part. This part has one, two, three, four apples. If this part has four apples, then this part must have five apples. When I take apart nine, I get five and four.
