Adding Tens to Three-Digit Numbers
00:00:07.080 --> 00:00:12.290
In this video, we’re going to learn how to model adding a multiple of 10 to a three-digit number.
00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:17.410
And as we do this, we’re going to investigate which digit in the number change.
00:00:18.860 --> 00:00:24.470
Now, let’s begin with a three-digit number, 231.
00:00:25.230 --> 00:00:29.110
And let’s imagine we want to find out what 40 more than this number is.
00:00:29.760 --> 00:00:32.730
We’re going to need to find the answer to an addition, aren’t we?
00:00:33.310 --> 00:00:36.560
231 plus 40.
00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:39.450
Let’s think about this number that we’re adding for a moment.
00:00:40.200 --> 00:00:41.710
What can we say about it?
00:00:42.100 --> 00:00:47.360
Well, we know that if we are modeling it out of base 10 equipment, we just need some tens blocks.
00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:52.930
We’d only need tens counters if we wanted to model it out of place value counters.
00:00:53.560 --> 00:01:01.350
And if we wanted to record it in a place value grid, the only digit we’d need that wasn’t a zero would be a four in the tens place.
00:01:01.960 --> 00:01:05.870
Obviously, we’d still need a zero in the ones to show that the four is in the tens place.
00:01:06.490 --> 00:01:11.050
So, all of these facts show us that 40 is what we call a multiple of 10.
00:01:11.690 --> 00:01:16.190
It’s a number we get by multiplying 10 or counting in tens.
00:01:16.870 --> 00:01:22.740
10, 20, 30, 40.
00:01:22.990 --> 00:01:24.900
These numbers all end in zero.
00:01:24.900 --> 00:01:27.120
They’re all multiples of 10.
00:01:27.580 --> 00:01:31.340
And these are the sorts of numbers that we’re going to be adding in this particular video.
00:01:31.850 --> 00:01:36.180
So, with this particular question, the multiple of 10 that we’re thinking of is 40.
00:01:36.780 --> 00:01:41.930
Now, one way we can find the answer quickly to a calculation like this is by using place value blocks to help.
00:01:42.440 --> 00:01:46.150
So, let’s start by modeling our three-digit number using place value blocks.
00:01:46.620 --> 00:01:57.320
231 is made up of two hundreds, three tens, which are worth 30, and one one.
00:01:58.010 --> 00:02:01.830
Now, as we’ve said already, we’re going to be adding a multiple of 10 to this number.
00:02:02.420 --> 00:02:05.130
And we model 40 using four 10s.
00:02:05.530 --> 00:02:08.540
Can you see where we need to add this to our place value blocks?
00:02:09.280 --> 00:02:18.130
We can add the four 10s to the three 10s blocks that we already have, and three plus another four equals seven.
00:02:18.730 --> 00:02:21.140
Our number now has seven 10s in it.
00:02:21.860 --> 00:02:25.260
We still have two 100s; that hasn’t changed.
00:02:25.930 --> 00:02:29.450
And we still have one one; that hasn’t changed.
00:02:29.820 --> 00:02:35.090
But our three-digit number has gone from having three 10s to seven 10s.
00:02:35.430 --> 00:02:39.040
That’s because by adding 40, we’ve added four 10s.
00:02:39.510 --> 00:02:44.650
231 plus 40 equals 271.
00:02:46.400 --> 00:02:50.480
Now, we don’t have to use place value blocks to find the answer to a question like this.
00:02:50.830 --> 00:02:56.350
Because we’re adding a number of tens, we could count on in tens to find the answer.
00:02:57.110 --> 00:02:59.250
And we could use a number line to help us do this.
00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:02.560
Let’s start with the number 147.
00:03:02.560 --> 00:03:07.480
And let’s imagine we want to find the sum of this number and 50.
00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:10.730
And we know that finding the sum means adding.
00:03:11.110 --> 00:03:15.310
So, we need to find the answer to 147 plus 50.
00:03:15.870 --> 00:03:21.870
The first thing we can do is look at the number that we’re adding and see that it’s a two-digit number that ends in a zero.
00:03:22.420 --> 00:03:24.170
It must be a multiple of 10.
00:03:24.170 --> 00:03:29.400
And when we think about our times tables facts, we know that five 10s make 50.
00:03:29.960 --> 00:03:33.810
So, we need to add five 10s to 147.
00:03:34.480 --> 00:03:42.260
And because we know how to count in tens, we could skip count in tens five times from 147 to find the answer.
00:03:43.010 --> 00:03:44.740
So, we could sketch a number line.
00:03:45.210 --> 00:03:49.240
We could mark 147 on the left because we’re going to be counting onwards.
00:03:49.320 --> 00:03:52.150
We’re going to need the rest of the number line to show what we’re doing.
00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:57.660
And we could put an arrow on both ends of the number line to show that it continues in both directions.
00:03:58.180 --> 00:04:02.150
And now, we simply need to practice counting in tens five times.
00:04:02.880 --> 00:04:17.880
So, we can say 147 and then 157, 167, 177, 187, 197.
00:04:18.340 --> 00:04:21.940
Did you notice which digit changes as we counted on in tens?
00:04:22.190 --> 00:04:29.510
The number 147 is made up of one 100, four 10s, and seven ones.
00:04:29.760 --> 00:04:33.970
And because we were skip counting by ten, it was the tens digit that began to change.
00:04:34.430 --> 00:04:44.210
Four 10s became five 10s, then six 10s, seven 10s, eight 10s.
00:04:45.370 --> 00:04:48.250
And we ended up with an answer that had nine 10s.
00:04:48.730 --> 00:04:51.700
We started off with a number that had four 10s.
00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:54.280
We added five more 10s.
00:04:54.870 --> 00:04:59.920
And because we know four plus five is nine, we’ve ended with a number with nine 10s.
00:05:00.430 --> 00:05:03.610
And you know you can hear the tens digit change as we read the numbers.
00:05:03.650 --> 00:05:11.810
147, 157, 167, 177, 187, 197.
00:05:12.170 --> 00:05:13.770
You actually hear it changing, can’t you?
00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:19.850
So, this is another way we could add a multiple of 10 to a three-digit number by counting on in tens.
00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:24.630
147 plus 50 equals 197.
00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:27.900
Now, let’s try one more example.
00:05:27.900 --> 00:05:31.760
And this time, it’s going to involve separating out the tens so that we can look at them on their own.
00:05:32.460 --> 00:05:36.310
Let’s imagine that we want to find the answer to 844 plus 30.
00:05:37.050 --> 00:05:42.640
Once again, we’re starting with a three-digit number, and we’re adding a two-digit number that ends in a zero.
00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:44.510
It’s a multiple of 10.
00:05:45.380 --> 00:05:49.010
And we know that 30 is the same as three 10s.
00:05:50.790 --> 00:05:57.270
And we know if we’re adding a number of tens to a three-digit number, it’s going to affect the number of tens in that number.
00:05:57.730 --> 00:06:00.710
So, the first thing we could do is to separate out the tens to look at them.
00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:03.150
And what we’re about to do, you could do in your head.
00:06:03.450 --> 00:06:06.970
But we’re going to use a part–whole model just to show exactly what we’re doing.
00:06:07.450 --> 00:06:10.210
So, we’re going to take our number 844.
00:06:10.940 --> 00:06:21.270
And because we know we’re adding a number of tens, we could separate out the tens part of 844 because we know there is a four digit in the tens place; we know that’s worth 40.
00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:25.550
And the other part is the rest of the number.
00:06:25.580 --> 00:06:30.810
So, we’ve still got our eight 100s and our four ones, 804.
00:06:31.650 --> 00:06:33.700
Can you see why we split the number up like this?
00:06:34.080 --> 00:06:37.960
We know that we want to add 30 to our number, which is worth three 10s.
00:06:38.390 --> 00:06:42.820
So, we’ve taken our four 10s out of the three-digit number so we can think about them separately.
00:06:43.190 --> 00:06:46.370
Now, we know that four plus three equals seven.
00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:55.870
And so, four 10s plus three 10s must equal seven 10s, or 40 plus 30 equals 70.
00:06:56.440 --> 00:06:59.620
The four 10s that we started off with are now seven 10s.
00:07:00.020 --> 00:07:03.370
And we just need to combine our two parts back together to find the answer.
00:07:04.080 --> 00:07:09.370
It still has eight 100s, and it still has four ones.
00:07:09.880 --> 00:07:14.540
Those digits haven’t changed, but our tens digit has changed.
00:07:15.070 --> 00:07:18.580
And by separating out the tens like this, we could find the answer quickly.
00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:23.320
844 plus 30 equals 874.
00:07:24.310 --> 00:07:32.940
Let’s have a go to answering some questions now, where we have to add tens to some three-digit numbers, and we’ll try putting into practice some of the different strategies we’ve talked about.
00:07:34.750 --> 00:07:40.310
Add the two numbers 328 and 20.
00:07:42.400 --> 00:07:45.090
In this question, we’re given two numbers to add together.
00:07:45.560 --> 00:07:51.580
We’ve got the three-digit number 328 and the two-digit number 20.
00:07:52.060 --> 00:07:55.810
Now, the number that we’re adding, 20 here, is a multiple of 10.
00:07:56.310 --> 00:08:03.210
We know this because it ends in a zero, and a multiple of 10 is a number that we can get by multiplying 10 several times.
00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:06.140
We know that two 10s are 20.
00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:13.380
Now, we know the number 328 contains three 100s, two 10s, and eight ones.
00:08:13.950 --> 00:08:19.590
And so, one way to find the answer might be to count on from this number in tens twice.
00:08:20.430 --> 00:08:22.500
Let’s count aloud and see where we end up.
00:08:23.030 --> 00:08:30.890
So, we start with 328 and then 338, 348.
00:08:31.590 --> 00:08:37.340
Look out, the tens digit in our number has gone from two 10s to four 10s.
00:08:37.870 --> 00:08:46.160
This is because our number had two 10s to begin with, and we needed to add 20 which is the same as two more 10s, which makes four 10s altogether.
00:08:46.930 --> 00:08:48.950
We counted on to find the answer.
00:08:49.610 --> 00:08:55.960
If we add together 328 and 20, we get the total 348.
00:09:00.150 --> 00:09:02.500
Count in tens to find the sum.
00:09:03.300 --> 00:09:07.040
643 plus 40 equals what.
00:09:07.810 --> 00:09:13.020
Our question begins with a three-digit number, 643.
00:09:13.020 --> 00:09:14.870
Can you see it labeled on this number line?
00:09:15.730 --> 00:09:18.320
And we need to add to it a multiple of 10.
00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:23.610
We know that a multiple of 10 is a number that we get by multiplying another number by 10.
00:09:24.290 --> 00:09:26.490
In other words, it is a number in the 10 times table.
00:09:26.520 --> 00:09:28.330
It’s a number of tens.
00:09:28.950 --> 00:09:33.030
And we can recognize the number 40 as being a multiple of 10 because it ends in a zero.
00:09:33.930 --> 00:09:36.630
And also, we know a times tables fact to help us, don’t we?
00:09:36.790 --> 00:09:38.920
Four 10s are 40.
00:09:39.760 --> 00:09:47.220
And that’s why we’re told in the question to count in tens to find the sum or we could even say count on four 10s.
00:09:47.710 --> 00:09:51.700
Now, if we look at our starting number, we can see that it contains four 10s already.
00:09:51.700 --> 00:09:55.150
So, we’ve got four 10s and we need to count on four 10s.
00:09:55.920 --> 00:09:58.880
How many tens do you think our number is going to have by the time we finished?
00:09:59.680 --> 00:10:02.900
Let’s count on to find out, and we’ll use the number line to help us.
00:10:03.650 --> 00:10:20.570
So, we have 643 and then 653, 663, 673, 683.
00:10:20.880 --> 00:10:25.510
The number 40 is the same as four 10s.
00:10:25.590 --> 00:10:29.530
So, we counted on in tens four times to find the sum.
00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:32.490
Our starting number had four 10s.
00:10:33.010 --> 00:10:37.820
We added on four 10s, and our answer has got eight 10s.
00:10:38.730 --> 00:10:40.370
And we can see why this is, can’t we?
00:10:40.600 --> 00:10:43.690
Because four plus four more equals eight.
00:10:44.330 --> 00:10:50.020
643 plus 40 equals 683.
00:10:54.840 --> 00:10:58.190
Find the sum by adding the tens first.
00:10:58.920 --> 00:11:02.860
321 plus 40 equals what.
00:11:03.670 --> 00:11:06.970
In this question, we need to find the sum of two numbers.
00:11:07.640 --> 00:11:11.900
And we know that finding the sum means finding the total, adding together.
00:11:12.600 --> 00:11:20.960
And the two numbers that we need to add together are a three-digit number, 321, and a two-digit number, 40.
00:11:21.630 --> 00:11:25.220
And we’re told to find the sum by adding the tens first.
00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.780
Can you see why we might want to do that?
00:11:28.620 --> 00:11:32.630
It’s because the number that we’re adding, 40, is a multiple of 10.
00:11:32.630 --> 00:11:34.220
It’s a number of tens.
00:11:34.840 --> 00:11:37.510
We know that four 10s are worth 40.
00:11:38.180 --> 00:11:47.530
And so, we can take out the tens of our number, 321, and just add our four 10s onto this, as long as we put the whole thing back together again at the end.
00:11:48.330 --> 00:11:52.470
And that’s what the part–whole model underneath the number 321 shows us.
00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:55.550
Let’s show what we mean using arrow cards too.
00:11:56.360 --> 00:11:58.540
So, here’s our number 321.
00:11:59.250 --> 00:12:03.870
And because we want to add on four 10s to it, we’re going to take out the tens from this number.
00:12:04.750 --> 00:12:05.320
There we go.
00:12:05.600 --> 00:12:09.030
So, we’ve split the number 321 into two parts.
00:12:09.560 --> 00:12:12.190
We’ve got our tens that we’re going to be working with.
00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:15.450
That’s two 10s, which are the same as 20.
00:12:16.250 --> 00:12:18.860
And we’ve got the other part, which is the number we’ve left behind.
00:12:19.050 --> 00:12:21.790
We’ll come back to that at the end, and that’s 301.
00:12:22.440 --> 00:12:25.470
So now that we’ve separated out the tens, we can add them.
00:12:26.060 --> 00:12:33.160
What is 20 plus 40 or what are two 10s plus another four 10s?
00:12:33.910 --> 00:12:36.930
Well, we know that two plus four equals six.
00:12:37.040 --> 00:12:40.440
So, the answer is going to be six 10s or 60.
00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:43.760
Let’s record our answer using another part–whole model.
00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:47.800
So, two 10s plus four 10s equals six 10s.
00:12:48.560 --> 00:12:52.270
And in the other part, we’ve still got that 301 that we left behind.
00:12:52.990 --> 00:12:59.290
So, to find the overall answer, we just need to quickly put back together our two parts, 301 and 60.
00:12:59.980 --> 00:13:01.250
Can you see what the numbers are going to be?
00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:07.750
Well, we know those six 10s are just going to slot neatly into the tens place of our answer, aren’t they?
00:13:08.600 --> 00:13:13.310
321 plus 40 equals 361.
00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:19.300
We found the sum of 321 and 40 by adding the tens first.
00:13:19.820 --> 00:13:24.720
321 has two 10s, and we added on four more 10s.
00:13:24.980 --> 00:13:27.630
And so, our answer has six 10s.
00:13:28.560 --> 00:13:33.890
The sum of 321 and 40 is 361.
00:13:38.630 --> 00:13:45.000
If I add together 436 and 60, what will the tens digit of the sum be?
00:13:46.200 --> 00:13:53.400
This is an interesting question because it starts off by looking like we need to add together 436 and 60.
00:13:53.790 --> 00:13:59.210
But as we read the rest of the question, we can see that we’re not being asked for the sum of these two numbers.
00:13:59.900 --> 00:14:03.480
We’re being asked what the tens digit in the sum is going to be.
00:14:04.060 --> 00:14:10.350
And you might think to yourself, “Well, I’m gonna have to work out the answer and then just look at what the tens digit is.”
00:14:10.790 --> 00:14:18.380
But there’s a quicker way to solve the problem, and it involves us understanding what it means to add a multiple of 10 to a three-digit number.
00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:21.860
So, let’s have a go at solving this problem the quick way.
00:14:22.410 --> 00:14:27.890
And it’s not that difficult; it just involves us understanding the place value of the numbers that we’re adding.
00:14:28.450 --> 00:14:38.590
So, if we think about the number we’re starting with, 436 contains four 100s, three 10s, and six ones.
00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:47.190
And the number that we’re adding to this contains six 10s and zero ones and, of course, zero 100s as well.
00:14:47.730 --> 00:14:51.860
Now, the really important bit about what we’ve just said is this digit here.
00:14:52.670 --> 00:14:58.420
The number that we’re adding on to 436 contains six 10s.
00:14:59.040 --> 00:15:06.370
It doesn’t contain any hundreds, doesn’t contain ones, just six 10s because six tens equals 60.
00:15:07.430 --> 00:15:13.030
Now, as we’ve said already, our starting number 436 has got three 10s.
00:15:13.380 --> 00:15:20.550
So if we already have three 10s and we’re adding on six 10s, what will the tens digit of the sum be?
00:15:20.910 --> 00:15:24.720
Well, we know that three plus six equals nine.
00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:29.930
So, three 10s plus six 10s is going to make nine 10s.
00:15:30.500 --> 00:15:33.750
Our answer is going to have the digit nine in the tens place.
00:15:34.220 --> 00:15:37.100
So, although we don’t have to, let’s just write down what the sum would be.
00:15:37.380 --> 00:15:42.280
It’s still going to have four 100s, and it’s still going to have six ones.
00:15:42.370 --> 00:15:44.000
Those digits aren’t going to change.
00:15:44.210 --> 00:15:48.850
But the three tens that we started with are now going to become nine 10s.
00:15:49.720 --> 00:15:54.860
436 plus 60 equals 496.
00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:59.190
We’ve used our knowledge of place value here to work out what the tens digit is going to be.
00:15:59.580 --> 00:16:12.870
If we add 60 to a number that has three 10s — in this question, it was the number 436, but, you know, it could have been any number at all — we found that the answer will contain nine 10s.
00:16:13.350 --> 00:16:17.380
So, the tens digit of the sum of these two numbers is nine.
00:16:21.380 --> 00:16:23.090
So, what have we learned in this video?
00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:29.570
We’ve learned how to model adding a multiple of 10 to a three-digit number.
00:16:40.440 --> 00:16:44.550
We’ve also investigated which digits change when we do this.
