Each jar contains 100
candies. Count in hundreds to find how
many candies there are. Write the answer in digits.

In the first picture, we can
see a jar of candies. And the first sentence tells us
how many candies there are in it. Each jar contains 100
candies. Can you see how we write the
number 100? It’s a one followed by two
zeros. And we can see in the picture
what 100 candies look like. Does this shape remind you of
anything? Well, it might remind you of
the 10 rows of 10 squares that we use to make a hundred square. And the place value block that
we use to represent 100 looks like this too. Arranging the candies like this
is a good way of helping us to remember that there are 100 in each jar.

Now we’re given a few jars of
candies. We need to find out how many
candies there are altogether by counting in hundreds. Now, imagine for a moment you
were given all these jars of candies and somebody said to you, “right, I want to
know how many candies there are altogether. Tip them all on the table and
start counting, one, two, three, and so on.“ You’d have a huge pile of
sweets and it will take you ages. Thankfully, our candies are
arranged in groups or jars of 100. And this is going to make it
much quicker for us to count.

Do you want to say each number
as we point to the jar? 100, 200, 300, 400, 500. There are six jars of 100
candies, so we can count in hundreds six times to find out how many there
are. There are 600 candies
altogether. Now we’re told we need to write
the answer in digits. Do you remember what we said at
the start about writing 100 in digits? 100 is the digit 1 followed by
two zeros. And we can see we’ve already
got 100, 200, and 300 labeled already. 400 must be a four followed by
two zeros. 500 is five, zero, zero. And so we know the number we
want to write, which is 600, must be a six followed by two zeros. Six jars of 100 candies makes
600 candies altogether.
