Scarlett is making soup for her friends
for dinner. One pot has enough soup for five bowls
and the other has enough for three bowls. Find the missing number. How many bowls of soup has she made? Five plus three equals what. There will be nine people eating
dinner. Has she made enough soup? Is five plus three more than nine?
In this problem, we’re being asked to
compare five plus three and nine. Is five plus three less than nine, equal
to nine, or greater than nine? First, we need to add five and three. Here are five counters to represent the
five bowls in the first pot. Let’s add three more. Five and three more makes eight. If five plus three is eight, then we can
say that eight is less than nine. Five plus three is less than nine. Has Scarlett made enough soup? No, she hasn’t. Five plus three is eight. Five plus three is not more than
nine. Five plus three is less than nine. No, Scarlett didn’t make enough soup. She needs one more bowl. Eight is one less than nine.
