The table below represents the number of students studying various subjects in two schools. Calculate the total number of students who study art.

So the first thing to do is actually look the question and see what we’re looking for. And what we’re looking for is the total number of students who actually study art. So we can see that in the first school, 24 students study art. In the second school, 62 students study art.

So therefore, we can say that the total students studying art of both the first school and the second school is gonna be equal to 24 plus 62. Now we can set this up as a column addition. So first of all, we can start with the units.

So we have four plus two, which is gonna give a six. And then we can move on to the tens. So we have two from 20 and six from 60. So when we add these together, we get eight. So therefore, 24 plus 62 is 86. So therefore, we can say that the total number of students studying art is equal to 86.
