Count the bones. Draw a dog for each bone.

We’re shown a number of bones. We’re also shown three different groups of dogs. The question is asking us to find a dog for each bone. So, we have to match the bones to the correct number of dogs. First, we need to count the bones. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. We have eight bones.

How many dogs are there in the first group? Let’s see if there’s a dog for each bone. One, two, three, four, five, six. There are only six dogs. We still have two more bones left and not enough dogs. Let’s count the second group of dogs. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Each dog has a bone. There are eight bones and eight dogs. This is the picture which shows a dog for every bone. There are eight dogs and eight bones.
