00:00:02.610 --> 00:00:06.340
The given table shows the tallies of the books read by a group of children.
00:00:06.900 --> 00:00:09.970
In numbers, write how many books each child read.
00:00:11.660 --> 00:00:17.490
Before we write down the number of books read by each child, what we’re gonna quickly look at is how tallies work.
00:00:18.550 --> 00:00:23.330
So each down strike — so each line — is equal to one — so in this case, one book.
00:00:24.620 --> 00:00:30.010
And after we have four down strikes or four lines, we then do a diagonal line.
00:00:30.480 --> 00:00:33.540
And this is equal to five — so in this case five books.
00:00:35.190 --> 00:00:39.140
Okay so with this in mind, let’s go on and find the number of books for each child.
00:00:40.200 --> 00:00:45.830
So we can see that the first child Dina has read four books because there are actually four lines.
00:00:47.140 --> 00:00:52.740
The second child, Fares, has read two books cause as you see there are two lines.
00:00:53.690 --> 00:00:55.980
Then move on to our third child, he’s Nader.
00:00:56.480 --> 00:00:58.260
Well, Nader has actually read seven books.
00:00:58.260 --> 00:01:05.470
We can see this because you’ve got five because we got four down strikes and one diagonal and then we’ve got two extra.
00:01:05.640 --> 00:01:06.390
So that’s seven.
00:01:07.980 --> 00:01:09.350
Then, we move on to Yasmine.
00:01:09.880 --> 00:01:11.830
And Yasmine’s actually read 10 books.
00:01:12.050 --> 00:01:14.550
And that’s because we have five and five.
00:01:14.870 --> 00:01:16.410
So five plus five is 10.
00:01:18.690 --> 00:01:21.770
And then, finally, we have Sameh, who has read five books.
00:01:23.090 --> 00:01:35.200
So therefore, we can say that the number of books read by each child are Dina has read four, Fares read two, Nader read seven, Yasmine read 10, and Sameh read five.
