Comparing Groups of Objects: Equal
00:00:07.520 --> 00:00:13.870
In this video, we will learn how to compare groups of up to five objects to see if they’re equal.
00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:20.200
To do this, we’re going to use a matching strategy.
00:00:21.940 --> 00:00:25.010
Here, we have two groups of socks.
00:00:26.320 --> 00:00:28.420
Are the groups equal?
00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:33.800
Equal groups have the same number of objects.
00:00:35.210 --> 00:00:38.820
Does each group have the same number of socks?
00:00:40.290 --> 00:00:46.310
To help us find out if the groups are equal, we could try to match the socks.
00:00:47.710 --> 00:00:52.780
We could match these two socks because they have the same pattern.
00:00:54.570 --> 00:00:58.090
And we could also match these two socks.
00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:01.960
We matched all the socks in the first group.
00:01:03.620 --> 00:01:07.190
But we have an odd sock in the second group.
00:01:07.950 --> 00:01:10.410
There’s one more sock left over.
00:01:10.450 --> 00:01:15.320
The second group has more socks.
00:01:16.620 --> 00:01:19.770
These two groups of socks are not equal.
00:01:20.790 --> 00:01:23.730
The second group has more socks.
00:01:25.380 --> 00:01:31.530
In this picture, we have a group of leaves and a group of caterpillars.
00:01:32.600 --> 00:01:34.810
Are the two groups equal?
00:01:36.140 --> 00:01:40.090
We can match the first leaf to the first caterpillar.
00:01:40.940 --> 00:01:44.910
And we can match the second leaf to the second caterpillar.
00:01:46.390 --> 00:01:48.600
Each caterpillar has a leaf.
00:01:49.160 --> 00:01:50.910
The groups are equal.
00:01:52.720 --> 00:02:00.320
Let’s practise comparing groups of objects to see if they’re equal, using the matching strategy.
00:02:03.860 --> 00:02:07.930
Are there the same number of paint brushes as paint palettes?
00:02:09.250 --> 00:02:15.280
Here, we have a group of paint palettes and a group of paint brushes.
00:02:16.330 --> 00:02:22.930
We have to find out if the number of paint palettes is equal to the number of paint brushes.
00:02:24.250 --> 00:02:27.450
We can match the first palette to a paint brush.
00:02:29.900 --> 00:02:33.440
And we can match the second palette to a paint brush.
00:02:35.770 --> 00:02:38.810
And the third palette also has a brush.
00:02:41.740 --> 00:02:44.350
Each paint palette has a brush.
00:02:45.360 --> 00:02:48.820
So, we have the same number of paint brushes as palettes.
00:02:49.170 --> 00:02:51.590
The number in each group is equal.
00:02:52.980 --> 00:02:59.730
So, the answer to the question are there the same number of paint brushes as paint palettes is yes.
00:03:01.330 --> 00:03:04.840
We were able to match each palette to a brush.
00:03:08.180 --> 00:03:12.260
Does the number of balls equal the number of rackets?
00:03:13.490 --> 00:03:20.000
The picture shows a group of tennis rackets and a group of tennis balls.
00:03:21.290 --> 00:03:25.270
The question is asking if each group is equal.
00:03:26.290 --> 00:03:31.360
In other words, are there the same number of rackets as tennis balls?
00:03:33.170 --> 00:03:39.170
To help us answer this question, we could try and match the balls to the rackets.
00:03:40.690 --> 00:03:42.970
The first racket has a ball.
00:03:44.420 --> 00:03:46.740
The second racket has a ball.
00:03:48.570 --> 00:03:53.880
So does the third racket, the fourth racket.
00:03:55.580 --> 00:03:58.640
But there’s no racket for this tennis ball.
00:04:00.150 --> 00:04:04.520
This means the number of balls and rackets are not equal.
00:04:05.100 --> 00:04:07.700
We have more tennis balls than rackets.
00:04:09.260 --> 00:04:15.120
So, the answer to the question does the number of balls equal the number of rackets is no.
00:04:16.370 --> 00:04:19.810
There are more tennis balls than tennis rackets.
00:04:23.710 --> 00:04:26.480
Is there a blouse for each skirt?
00:04:27.840 --> 00:04:31.930
Let’s try matching the blouses to the skirts.
00:04:33.710 --> 00:04:35.680
There’s a blouse for the first skirt.
00:04:37.250 --> 00:04:41.440
We can match the second skirt to this blouse.
00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:45.770
And we can match this skirt and this blouse.
00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:51.490
But there’s no blouse for this skirt.
00:04:52.790 --> 00:04:58.740
There isn’t a blouse for each skirt because there are more skirts than blouses.
00:05:00.100 --> 00:05:03.130
We still have one skirt left over.
00:05:04.730 --> 00:05:09.400
So, the answer to the question is there a blouse for each skirt is no.
00:05:10.970 --> 00:05:13.560
There are more skirts than blouses.
00:05:15.310 --> 00:05:22.800
In this video, we have learned we can compare two groups to see if they’re equal using matching.
