Count on to find five plus
four.

In this question, we need to find
the total of five and four. Can you see the add symbol in
between five and four in the question? This means five plus four. We need to add together the two
numbers, and the question also tells us how to do this. We need to count on to find five
plus four. What does counting on mean? Well, it means we need to start at
the first number in our addition, which is five. And it means we need to find
another four. In other words, we need to say the
next four numbers that come after five. And if we look at the picture of
the number line, we can see this. The starting number, which is five,
has been labeled. And can you see the four jumps are
as shown? One, two, three, four.

So let’s use our number line to
help us add together five and four. So we’ll say five and then six,
seven, eight, nine. We’ve found the answer to five plus
four by starting at five and counting on another four. The last number we said was nine,
and that’s how we know that five plus four is nine.
