Count the elephants. Show the same number using balls.

We’re shown a number of elephants. And the first part of the question tells us to count them. Let’s use counters to help make sure we count them all correctly. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. There are eight elephants. We have to show the same number using the balls. Which of our three groups of balls shows the number eight? Let’s look at the first picture. Does this show eight balls?

Let’s check using our counters. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. This picture shows the correct number of balls. There are eight elephants and eight balls. This picture only has six balls. We would need two more to show eight. Six is two less than eight. And this picture has nine balls. It has one more ball than eight. We would need to take one ball away to show eight. We counted eight elephants and we showed the same number using balls.
