Counting Backward from 10

In this video, we will learn how to count backward from 10 to zero and find the missing numbers in a sequence.

Let’s count backward from 10. 10, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero. We have liftoff! When we count backward, we start with the largest number first and count down to the smallest. 10, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero. Let’s practice counting backward from 10 to help us find some missing numbers.

Count backward from nine. Find the missing numbers.

The question tells us that we have to count backward to find the missing numbers. And we have to start from number nine. We could use a number track to help. We have to start at nine and count backward. Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.

So the first missing number is number six. The next number in our missing sequence is number four. And the last missing number is number three. The missing numbers are six, four, and three. Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one. We completed the sequence counting backwards from nine.

Find the missing number. Eight, seven six, five, four, three, what, one.

To find the missing number, we have to start on step number eight and count backward to number one. The missing number comes between step three and step one. Let’s use our number track and count backward to help us find the missing number.

Let’s start counting at number eight. Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two. Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two. When we’re counting backward, the number that comes after number three is two. The missing number is number two.

Complete the following. Eight, what, what, five, what, three, what, and what.

We’re shown a number sequence. And we have to complete the missing numbers. We’re counting backward starting from number eight. We know this because five is less than eight. And three is less than five. Let’s start counting from number eight. Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.

The missing numbers are seven, six, four, two, and one. We counted backward from number eight. Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one. And we found the missing numbers.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned how to count backward from 10 to zero. And we used this skill to help us find the missing numbers in sequences.
