00:00:00.600 --> 00:00:04.360
Sophia was counting the coins in her money box.
00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:08.720
She had 62 coins.
00:00:09.280 --> 00:00:14.920
29 of them were quarters and the rest were dimes.
00:00:15.440 --> 00:00:18.880
She wants to know how many dimes are in her money box.
00:00:19.440 --> 00:00:24.840
Which part-part-whole diagram represents this problem?
00:00:25.840 --> 00:00:28.600
We’re given two possible answers to this problem.
00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:32.320
But what’s the same and what’s different about the two diagrams?
00:00:32.840 --> 00:00:45.280
Well, firstly, both diagrams show a whole amount that’s labelled, and this is made up of two parts, and they’re coloured blue and orange on our diagrams.
00:00:45.960 --> 00:00:51.080
Also, both diagrams show that 29 is part of the whole.
00:00:51.680 --> 00:00:58.800
These are the 29 quarters that the problem tells us that Sophia has.
00:00:59.480 --> 00:01:05.680
But a big difference is how these diagrams represent the number 62.
00:01:06.400 --> 00:01:09.720
Is it the whole amount or is it part of the whole?
00:01:10.320 --> 00:01:12.760
Let’s read the question again to find out.
00:01:13.600 --> 00:01:17.640
Sophia was counting the coins in her money box.
00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:22.160
She had 62 coins.
00:01:22.760 --> 00:01:34.400
This is talking about the total amount of coins Sophia has because we find out that 29 of them are quarters and the rest are dimes.
00:01:34.400 --> 00:01:38.120
So the whole is worth 62.
00:01:38.800 --> 00:01:43.280
So we can see now which of the two diagrams is correct.
00:01:44.080 --> 00:01:48.840
The total number of coins or the whole amount is 62.
00:01:49.560 --> 00:01:57.120
Part of the whole are the 29 quarters that Sophia has, and the rest are dimes.
00:01:57.760 --> 00:02:02.480
And Sophia wants to know what this other part is worth.
00:02:02.480 --> 00:02:07.640
And so the part-part-whole diagram that represents this problem is this one.
