Charlotte had 98 cents and Daniel
had 67 cents. They put their money together and
then spent 82 cents on a snack. How much was left?
So we know that Charlotte had 98
cents and Daniel had 67 cents. And then we’re told they put their
money together. So we want to add that
together. And then after they put it
together, they spent 82 cents on a snack. So if they spent that money, they
no longer have it, so they need to subtract it. So we need to subtract 82
cents. And then this will tell us how much
money is left.
So first, 89 cents plus 67 cents is
equal to 165 cents. Now, normally, we don’t say 165
cents. 165 cents is equal to one dollar
and 65 cents, because 100 pennies or 100 cents makes one dollar. So we have one dollar and 65 cents
And then they spent 82 cents on a
snack, so we need to take that away. So instead of saying one dollar and
65 cents minus 82 cents, we can keep the original 165 cents. That way, we’re working with cents
the whole time. So 165 cents minus 82 cents is
equal to 83 cents. So after Charlotte and Daniel put
their money together and then spent money on a snack, they had 83 cents left.
