There are six cats. Three plus three is six. Find out the missing numbers to have another way to get six. What plus what is six.

We’re told in this question that there are six cats, and this question is all about different ways to make six. To begin with, we’re shown a number sentence made out of pictures. In the first picture, we can see three cats. And in the second picture, we can see another three cats. Then, in the final picture, we can see six cats. This shows us that three plus three is six. We could actually draw a line across our group of six cats to show us that three and three make six.

But then we’re shown another picture number sentence. This time we’ve got some missing numbers, and we’re told to find out the missing numbers to have another way to get six. How else could we make six? Well, if we look carefully at our first picture, we can see that, instead of three cats, this now shows two cats. Let’s write the number two above that picture. Two plus what make six. But if we want to make the same total, which is six, we need to do something with the cat that’s walked away. Instead of three cats to begin with, we have two. So the cat that’s gone away is gonna have to join the second group to keep the answer the same.

If you remember, we did have a group of three cats as a second group. We now need to have a group with one more cat in it. Let’s count them to see whether there are four cats in our second group. One, two, three. Yes, there are. There are four cats in our second group. Two plus four is six. And again, we can draw a line on our group of six just to show that two and four make six. We know that three plus three is six, and we can use this to help us find that two plus four is six too.
