Jennifer has two bags of marbles. Which bag has more marbles than the other?

In the picture, we can see the two bags of marbles that Jennifer has. They’re labeled bag A and bag B. We need to compare bag A with bag B because we’re asked which bag has more marbles than the other. Which bag contains a larger group of marbles?

Now the way these marbles have been drawn, it could be quite difficult to match them up. Let’s use counters to help us. First, we’ll count the marbles in bag A. And we’re going to use one counter for each marble that we count. One, two, three, four, five. There are five marbles in bag A. What about bag B? There are one, two, three marbles in bag B.

Now we can compare the two heights of the towers of counters that we’ve made. Tower A is taller than tower B. So we know there must be more counters in it. And we also know there must be more marbles in bag A than bag B. And so, out of Jennifer’s two bags of marbles, the bag that has more marbles than the other is bag A.
