Gummy bears come in packets of 10. Natalie has three packets of gummy bears. Write a number sentence that shows how many gummy bears she has.

Our bar model shows the total number of gummy bears that Natalie has. The orange part of our bar model shows Natalie’s three packets. And we know that the gummy bears come in packets of 10. We’re asked to write a number sentence that shows how many gummy bears she has.

We know that Natalie has three packets. And we also know that each packet has 10 gummy bears. Three multiplied by 10 equals 30. Three tens are 30. If gummy bears come in packets of 10 and Natalie has three packets of gummy bears, the number sentence that shows how many gummy bear she has is three times 10 equals 30.
