Find out what happens when we add with zero. Add these numbers. Six plus zero.

We’re being asked to add together six and zero. Here, we have six counters in a tens frame. And this ten frame represents the zero in the sum. There are no counters in this ten frame.

If we were to add the empty ten frame, with no counters, to the ten frame with six counters, nothing would change. We would still have six counters. So, six plus zero equals six. When you add zero to six, the answer is six.
