00:00:01.570 --> 00:00:07.560
James drew this to show that 36 is four times as many as nine.
00:00:08.780 --> 00:00:11.330
Write an equation which shows this.
00:00:12.540 --> 00:00:16.670
Here, we can see what looks like a bar model that James has drawn.
00:00:17.300 --> 00:00:22.750
And the question tells us the number fact that James wants to show by drawing this bar model.
00:00:23.380 --> 00:00:29.410
He wants to show that 36 is four times as many as nine.
00:00:31.050 --> 00:00:34.870
If we look carefully at the bar model we can see how James has built it up.
00:00:35.970 --> 00:00:41.280
He started off by drawing four blocks all the same size.
00:00:42.400 --> 00:00:47.430
They’re all the same size because he wants them to be all worth the same amount.
00:00:49.360 --> 00:00:56.380
The bar underneath that James eventually draws is going to be four times as long as one of these bars.
00:00:59.710 --> 00:01:05.110
So it’s important that each of his four bars are exactly the same size.
00:01:06.970 --> 00:01:11.900
James wants each one of the four bars that he’s drawn to be worth nine.
00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:32.240
And the total of all four bars is worth 36 because the whole point of James’s bar model is to show that the number 36 is worth four times as many as nine.
00:01:34.150 --> 00:01:38.490
There are four lots of nine that make 36.
00:01:39.290 --> 00:01:42.510
Now, we are asked to write an equation which shows this.
00:01:43.140 --> 00:01:47.990
Now remember, an equation is a statement that has an equal sign in it.
00:01:48.450 --> 00:01:54.320
Something this side of the equal sign is worth the same as something this side of the equal sign.
00:01:55.240 --> 00:01:59.620
If we look back at the question, it gives us a hint as to where to write the equal sign.
00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:03.810
We could even replace the word “is” for an equal sign.
00:02:04.760 --> 00:02:10.330
James drew this to show that 36 equals four times as many as nine.
00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:14.760
So let’s start by writing the number 36.
00:02:17.310 --> 00:02:20.190
36 equals what?
00:02:20.920 --> 00:02:24.330
Four times as many as nine or four lots of nine.
00:02:25.600 --> 00:02:27.800
We could write our equation like this.
00:02:30.850 --> 00:02:37.010
Four lots of nine is simply nine plus nine plus nine plus nine.
00:02:38.480 --> 00:02:42.050
But is there a more efficient way to write four lots of nine?
00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:47.440
Yes, we can write four lots of nine as a multiplication.
00:02:51.330 --> 00:02:56.310
We could even imagine that we cross out some of the words in the question to get another hint.
00:02:57.780 --> 00:03:00.900
36 equals four times nine.
00:03:01.700 --> 00:03:08.070
Bar models are a really good way of representing calculations, especially multiplication calculations.
00:03:08.760 --> 00:03:11.920
So this bar model shows our multiplication perfectly.
00:03:13.080 --> 00:03:22.670
The equation that shows that 36 is four times as many as nine is 36 equals four times nine.
