There are how many cats. How many cats have bows? Complete the number bond. How many cats do not have bows? What number is missing? Six minus the missing number equals two.

First, let’s count the cats: one, two, three, four, five, six. There are six cats. Now, let’s count how many cats have bows: one, two, three, four. These cats don’t have bows. Now, let’s complete the number bond. How many cats do not have bows? One, two.

Now, we can answer this question: what number is missing? Six take away the missing number equals two. We know there are six cats and we know that two cats do not have bows. So the missing number must be four because four cats do have bows.

So there are six cats, four cats have bows, two cats do not have bows, and the missing number is four.
