Circle the correct number of tens and ones to make 63.
Let’s listen to the question again. Circle the correct number of tens and ones to make 63. If we were to write the number 63, what would it look like? It would be made up of a six and a three. We know the digit six in the number 63 stands for six tens or 60. So we need to circle six tens: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60. Six tens are the same as 60.
In the number 63, the three digit represents three ones. So we need to circle three ones: one, two, and three. It doesn’t matter which tens or which ones that we’ve circled as long as we’ve drawn circles around six tens and three ones. We needed to circle the correct number of tens and ones that made 63. So we circled six tens and three ones.
