00:00:01.680 --> 00:00:05.370
We can break apart numbers to subtract as shown.
00:00:06.720 --> 00:00:09.050
First subtract to get 60.
00:00:10.050 --> 00:00:11.780
How many ones do we take away?
00:00:13.440 --> 00:00:15.740
Now, subtract the rest of the ones.
00:00:16.820 --> 00:00:19.720
What is 62 take away six?
00:00:21.750 --> 00:00:27.890
We can see from the calculation that’s shown, this problem is all about subtracting six from 62.
00:00:28.590 --> 00:00:33.240
And in particular, it’s about breaking apart numbers to help us subtract.
00:00:34.190 --> 00:00:49.090
If we look at the calculation that we’re shown, we can see that the number six, that’s the number that we’re taking away, has been broken apart, or partitioned, into two numbers, two and four.
00:00:50.260 --> 00:00:52.130
But why would we want to do that?
00:00:53.310 --> 00:00:56.660
Can’t we just start with 62 and take away six all in one go?
00:00:57.630 --> 00:01:01.710
Before we answer that question, here’s another question to answer.
00:01:02.650 --> 00:01:04.890
Which would you rather subtract six from?
00:01:05.550 --> 00:01:08.620
62 or 60?
00:01:09.420 --> 00:01:14.340
Well, it should be easier to subtract from 60 because it’s a multiple of 10.
00:01:15.560 --> 00:01:18.040
We can subtract quickly from multiples of 10.
00:01:18.920 --> 00:01:22.250
And so, that’s why it can help us to break apart numbers.
00:01:22.990 --> 00:01:26.870
We can break up the number that we’re taking away into two parts.
00:01:27.560 --> 00:01:32.350
In the first part, we subtract enough to take us to 60.
00:01:33.140 --> 00:01:35.700
And this is what the first question’s asking us.
00:01:36.320 --> 00:01:39.160
First, subtract to get to 60.
00:01:39.570 --> 00:01:41.420
How many ones do we take away?
00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:44.450
We start with 62.
00:01:45.000 --> 00:01:47.400
And we want to get to 60.
00:01:48.130 --> 00:01:50.970
We need to take away two ones.
00:01:51.440 --> 00:01:55.950
That’s why the number six has been broken apart into two and another number.
00:01:56.510 --> 00:01:59.780
Because taking away two takes us to 60.
00:02:00.410 --> 00:02:01.970
Now we’re on the number 60.
00:02:02.470 --> 00:02:07.810
And as we’ve said already, it can sometimes be a lot easier to take away from a multiple of 10.
00:02:08.750 --> 00:02:13.320
The second question then asks us to subtract the rest of the ones.
00:02:14.080 --> 00:02:16.790
What is 62 take away six?
00:02:17.410 --> 00:02:20.010
We’ve already taken away two ones.
00:02:20.530 --> 00:02:23.780
Now we need to take away the remaining four ones.
00:02:24.380 --> 00:02:29.370
60 take away four equals 56.
00:02:30.220 --> 00:02:35.990
And so, we know that the answer to the subtraction 62 take away six equals 56.
00:02:36.940 --> 00:02:43.530
We calculated the answer by partitioning, or breaking apart, the number six into two and four.
00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:46.830
We wanted to do this so that we got to 60.
00:02:46.830 --> 00:02:48.960
And we’re able to subtract then from 60.
00:02:49.420 --> 00:02:54.260
The number of ones that we took away to get to 60 was two ones.
00:02:55.140 --> 00:03:00.120
We then took away the rest of the ones, which was four ones, and we found the answer.
00:03:00.630 --> 00:03:05.140
62 take away six equals 56.
