00:00:02.990 --> 00:00:05.750
A group of fairies were flying around a flower.
00:00:06.550 --> 00:00:12.170
After four more fairies joined the group, there were 14 fairies in total.
00:00:13.590 --> 00:00:16.990
The question tells us that there were a group of fairies to begin with.
00:00:16.990 --> 00:00:18.610
But we donâ€™t know how many.
00:00:19.920 --> 00:00:22.840
We know that four more fairies joined the group.
00:00:24.190 --> 00:00:27.940
So we can circle the four fairies that joined the group.
00:00:29.710 --> 00:00:35.350
And after the four fairies joined, we know that there were 14 fairies in total.
00:00:36.960 --> 00:01:09.370
To find the missing number, we can count the number of fairies there were before four more fairies joined the group, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10.
00:01:11.170 --> 00:01:14.820
10 plus four equals 14.
00:01:16.970 --> 00:01:19.780
How many fairies were there at the start?
00:01:21.030 --> 00:01:22.580
We counted 10.
00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:27.070
There were 10 fairies flying around a flower.
00:01:27.650 --> 00:01:29.740
Four more fairies joined the group.
00:01:30.040 --> 00:01:32.360
There were 14 fairies in total.
