Natalie has two red cars and Jacob has three blue cars. How many cars are there?

To find the answer, we have to work out how many cars there are altogether. We could use a tens frame to help us. Here, we have two counters. These counters represent Natalie’s two cars. And we’ve used three blue counters to show Jacob’s cars. Now, we can count how many cars there are altogether. One, two, three, four, five. If Natalie has two red cars and Jacob has three blue cars, there are five cars.
