Count the turtles. Show the same number using eggs.

We’re shown a number of turtles and three different groups of eggs. The question is asking us to match the group of turtles to the correct group of eggs. First, we have to count the turtles. One, two, three, four, five, six. There are six turtles. So we’re looking for the group of eggs which shows six eggs.

Let’s count the first group of eggs. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. There are more eggs than turtles. If we match each turtle to an egg, there are still two eggs left over. There are two more eggs than turtles. Let’s count how many eggs there are in the second group of eggs. One, two, three, four, five six. There are six eggs and six turtles.

This is the picture that has the same number of eggs as turtles. Let’s just count the eggs in the third group. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. This is the group that shows the same number of eggs as turtles. There are six eggs and six turtles.
