A mother elephant weighs 6228 kilograms and her baby weighs 1540 kilograms.
00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:16.820
Using the plus sign, how do you represent their total weight in kilograms?
00:00:18.930 --> 00:00:24.460
The question is asking us to record this information as a number sentence.
00:00:25.440 --> 00:00:30.760
We know it’s an addition sentence because the question asks us to use the plus sign.
00:00:31.060 --> 00:00:32.520
So let’s write that down.
00:00:34.540 --> 00:00:36.620
Now, we’ve recorded the plus sign.
00:00:36.870 --> 00:00:41.320
We just need to write down the two numbers that we’re going to add together.
00:00:43.920 --> 00:00:50.270
The question tells us that the mother elephant weighs 6228 kilograms.
00:00:50.560 --> 00:00:52.190
So now, we can write that down.
00:00:53.730 --> 00:00:58.470
And her baby weighs 1540 kilograms.
00:00:58.680 --> 00:01:00.050
So let’s write that down.
00:01:02.420 --> 00:01:12.490
So to represent the total weight of the mother elephant and her baby elephant, we need to record their weights and add them together.
00:01:12.930 --> 00:01:20.550
The answer is 6228 plus 1540.
