00:00:00.360 --> 00:00:05.520
A farmer plants 200 orange trees and 300 mango trees.
00:00:06.240 --> 00:00:08.400
How many trees did the farmer plant?
00:00:09.960 --> 00:00:12.440
What is happening in this word problem?
00:00:13.280 --> 00:00:20.360
In this problem, our farmer has planted some number of orange trees and also some number of mango trees.
00:00:21.440 --> 00:00:33.400
If we want to know the total number of trees he planted, we’ll need to add the number of orange trees plus the number of mango trees.
00:00:34.640 --> 00:00:40.560
There were 200 orange trees plus 300 mango trees.
00:00:41.600 --> 00:00:46.760
If we add two hundreds plus three hundreds together, we will have five hundreds.
00:00:47.760 --> 00:00:54.400
Another way to write five hundreds is five zero zero.
00:00:55.080 --> 00:00:59.040
The farmer planted a total of 500 trees.
