00:00:02.364 --> 00:00:05.134
Elizabeth counts the steps as she climbs.
00:00:06.024 --> 00:00:07.564
Which number will she finish on?
00:00:09.214 --> 00:00:11.484
Which number has she missed out?
00:00:12.814 --> 00:00:16.944
In the picture, we can see that Elizabeth is climbing a set of steps.
00:00:17.654 --> 00:00:20.624
And we’re told that she counts the steps as she climbs them.
00:00:21.504 --> 00:00:24.584
Perhaps this is the sort of thing you’ve done at home to see how many there are.
00:00:25.484 --> 00:00:30.514
The first part of this question asks us, which number will she finish on?
00:00:31.504 --> 00:00:37.154
In other words, which number will she say when she reaches the top step?
00:00:37.934 --> 00:00:41.344
Every step she takes, she says one more number.
00:00:42.354 --> 00:00:45.274
Let’s imagine that we’re climbing these steps.
00:00:45.984 --> 00:00:49.144
And we’ll count forwards one for each step that we stand on.
00:00:49.914 --> 00:01:03.804
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
00:01:04.984 --> 00:01:06.864
There are eight steps.
00:01:07.284 --> 00:01:11.734
This means that the number that Elizabeth will finish counting on is the number eight.
00:01:12.664 --> 00:01:19.354
In the picture underneath the second part of the question, we can see that Elizabeth has missed a number out as she climbs the steps.
00:01:20.064 --> 00:01:21.374
Here’s the missing number.
00:01:22.084 --> 00:01:22.834
What is it?
00:01:23.424 --> 00:01:29.854
We can use our knowledge of the counting sequence to count forwards and to work out what the missing number might be.
00:01:30.384 --> 00:01:35.204
One, two, three, four, five.
00:01:35.764 --> 00:01:38.154
We know the number after five is six.
00:01:38.854 --> 00:01:40.684
And then comes seven and eight.
00:01:41.364 --> 00:01:45.014
The missing number in the sequence is the number six.
00:01:45.674 --> 00:01:49.194
Our two answers are eight and six.
