True or false: three equals six take away three.
00:00:07.320 --> 00:00:12.400
In any statement like this, the equal sign means “is the same as.”
00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:21.360
And so we can read this as three is the same as six take away three.
00:00:22.160 --> 00:00:24.200
Is this true or false?
00:00:24.520 --> 00:00:29.280
On the left-hand side of the equal sign, we have the number three.
00:00:29.680 --> 00:00:33.840
So we can represent this by using three counters.
00:00:34.600 --> 00:00:41.440
On the right-hand side of the equal sign, we have the expression six take away three.
00:00:42.040 --> 00:00:48.800
We can represent this by starting with six counters and then taking away three of them.
00:00:49.240 --> 00:00:52.760
This leaves us with three counters.
00:00:53.240 --> 00:00:57.040
So we can see that both sides of the equal sign are worth the same.
00:00:57.600 --> 00:00:59.360
So the statement is true.
00:00:59.720 --> 00:01:03.320
Three does equal six take away three.
