Adding Two-Digit Numbers with
In this video, we’re going to learn
how to add two two-digit numbers with regrouping and model this with place value
equipment. The numbers 29 and 34 are both
two-digit numbers. The two in the number 29 is worth
two 10s, and the nine digit is worth nine ones. The three digit in the number 34 is
worth three 10s, and the four digit is worth four ones. So when we’re adding two two-digit
numbers, we have to add the tens and the ones.
When we’re adding two two-digit
numbers, we always have to add the ones first. We need to add together the nine
ones from the number 29 and the four ones from the number 34. The first thing we need to ask
ourselves is, can we make a group of 10? Yes, we can. Nine plus one more makes 10. We have 13 ones altogether, a group
of 10 and three more. When we can make a group of 10
ones, we have to regroup them and swap them for one 10.
Now we’ve finished adding the ones,
we need to add the tens. 29 has two 10s, and 34 has three
10s. We already know we’ve got three
ones. Let’s count the total number of
tens. There are six tens blocks, which
are worth 60. 60 plus three gives us a total of
63. 29 plus 34 equals 63.
First, we added the ones. We checked if we could make 10. We had 13 ones, so we were able to
regroup 10 of our ones to make a tens block. Then, we added together the
tens. Then, we put the tens and ones back
together again. 60 plus three gave us a total of
Let’s remind ourselves of the steps
we need to make when we’re adding two two-digit numbers. First, we need to add the ones. Then, we need to check if we can
make any tens. If we have more than 10 ones, we
can regroup. Regrouping means making a group of
10 ones and swapping them for one 10. Then, we add the tens. Then, we add the total number of
ones and the total number of tens together.
Let’s practice what we’ve learned
by answering some questions now.
Using the given model, find 28 plus
In this question, we’re adding two
two-digit numbers. The number 28 has two 10s and eight
ones, and the number 46 has four 10s and six ones. Let’s use a place value chart to
help us add. When we’re adding two two-digit
numbers, we always start by adding the ones. 28 has eight ones. 46 has six ones. Eight ones plus six ones gives us a
total of 14 ones. We need to regroup 10 of our ones
and make one 10. Our 14 ones make a group of 10 and
Now that we finished adding the
ones and regrouping, we need to add our tens. 24 has two 10s, and 46 has four
10s. We’ve got seven 10s altogether and
four ones. Seven 10s are worth 70, plus four
ones make 74. 28 plus 46 equals 74.
Find the sum of 35 and 15.
When we see the word sum or the
phrase find the sum, we know that means we need to add. We have to find the sum of our two
two-digit numbers. The number 35 has three 10s and
five ones, and the number 15 has one 10 and five ones. And this has been modeled for us in
our place value table. When we add two two-digit numbers,
we always have to add the ones first. Both of our two-digit numbers have
five ones. What is five plus five? Five plus five is 10.
If the ones total 10 or more, we
have to regroup. We can make a group of 10. And then we can swap our 10 ones
for one tens block. So now we have a total of no
ones. And we’ve got an extra 10 to add
with the rest of our tens blocks. We know that 35 has three 10s and
15 has one 10. Three 10s plus one more 10 gives us
a total of four 10s, plus the 10 we regrouped gives us a total of five 10s. Five 10s are 50. So 35 plus 15 equals 50.
First, we added the ones. We had 10 ones, so we
regrouped. Then we added all our tens. There were five 10s. So 35 plus 15 equals 50.
Find the sum. 27 plus 33 equals what? Hint: Draw place value blocks to
In this question, we have to add
together two two-digit numbers. Each number has an amount of tens
and ones. And we’re told to use place value
blocks to help. We can model the number 27 using
two tens blocks and seven ones. And we can model the number 33
using three 10s and three ones. Let’s start by adding the ones. There are seven ones in 27 plus
three more ones in 33. Seven and three makes 10. We need to regroup these 10 ones
and make one 10. Now we have no ones, and we’ve made
an extra 10. Next, we need to add the tens. 23 has two 10s. There are three 10s in 33. Two 10s plus three 10s makes five
10s, plus the 10 we made from the ones. Altogether, we have six 10s. Six 10s make 60. The sum of 27 and 33 is 60.
What have we learned in this
video? We have learned how to add two
two-digit numbers with regrouping. We learned that first we add the
ones and regroup. Then we add the tens.
