We can break apart numbers into
tens and ones to Add. 43 plus 16. Add the tens. What is 40 plus 10. Add the ones. What is three plus six?
Add the sums to find 43 plus
16. To help us add 43 and 16, we’ve
broken apart these two numbers into their tens and ones. 43 has four tens, which is worth
40. And it has three ones, which are
worth three. 16 has a one in the tens place,
which is worth 10, and the six digit in 16 is worth six ones. First, we need to add the tens. 40 plus 10. 10 more than 40 or 40 plus 10 is
50. Next, we have to add the ones,
three plus six. Three plus six is nine.
Now, we just need to add these two
sums together. The total of our tens is 50. And the total of our ones is
nine. 50 plus nine equals 59. 43 plus 16 equals 59. First, we broke the numbers apart
into tens and ones. We added the tens; 40 plus 10 is
50. Then we added the ones; three plus
six is nine. Then all we had to do is add the
sums. 50 plus nine is 59 to give us our
answer. 43 plus 16 equals 59.
