00:00:02.950 --> 00:00:11.120
1774 plus 3726 equals the missing number.
00:00:14.760 --> 00:00:18.230
We should calculate the answer using column addition.
00:00:19.540 --> 00:00:22.140
And we can use a place value chart to help.
00:00:23.920 --> 00:00:31.330
So let’s write our first number one, 1774, which has four ones.
00:00:32.520 --> 00:00:34.620
So we write four in the ones place.
00:00:35.610 --> 00:00:53.840
We have seven tens, seven hundreds, and we’re going to add 3726 which has six ones, two tens, seven hundreds, and three thousands.
00:00:55.460 --> 00:00:58.060
We start by adding in the ones column.
00:00:59.420 --> 00:01:01.120
Four plus six is 10.
00:01:02.930 --> 00:01:04.950
So we can write the zero in the ones.
00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:10.250
And we have to write the 10 in the tens column to remind us to add it later.
00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:14.070
Next, we move into the tens column.
00:01:15.330 --> 00:01:17.140
Seven plus two is nine.
00:01:17.630 --> 00:01:21.520
But we also have one that we carried from the ones column.
00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:24.340
Nine plus one makes 10.
00:01:25.180 --> 00:01:30.570
Again we write the zero and carry the one over to the next column.
00:01:32.090 --> 00:01:33.960
Now we move into the hundreds column.
00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:42.800
Seven plus seven is 14 plus the one we carried from the tens column, which makes 15.
00:01:43.590 --> 00:01:49.570
We can write our five in its place and then carry the one to the next column on the left.
00:01:50.540 --> 00:01:52.430
Then we move into the thousands column.
00:01:53.540 --> 00:01:55.360
Three plus one is four.
00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:59.660
And we also have to add the one we carried from the hundreds column.
00:02:00.500 --> 00:02:02.570
Four plus one makes five.
00:02:03.550 --> 00:02:05.910
So we have five in the thousands column.
00:02:08.320 --> 00:02:17.950
1774 plus 3726 equals 5500.
00:02:20.330 --> 00:02:23.850
We calculated our answer using column addition.
