There are six boxes. Each box contains 1,000 pieces of
candy. How many pieces of candy are there
in total?

The first piece of information that
we’re given in this question is that there are six boxes, and we can see these in
the picture. Next, we’re told how many pieces of
candy are in each box. This is an interesting number. It has four digits. This number is made up of zero
ones, zero 10s, zero 100s, and one 1000. When we see the digit one followed
by three zeros, we know it’s 1,000. So, each box contains 1,000 pieces
of candy, and there are six of them.

We’re asked how many pieces of
candy are there in total. We can find the answer by counting
in thousands six times, one for each box. 1,000; 2,000. Look at how the thousands digits
changed in our place value grid. 3,000; 4,000; 5,000; 6,000. We read that each of these boxes
contained 1,000 pieces of candy. And because there are six boxes, we
knew that we could find the total number of pieces of candy by counting in thousands
six times. 1,000; 2,000; 3,000; 4,000; 5,000;
6,000. And we can write the number 6,000
using digits as a six in the thousands place. We can use a comma to separate the
thousands and the hundreds digits and then zeros in the hundreds, tens, and ones
places. There are 6,000 pieces of candy in
total.
