00:00:01.407 --> 00:00:03.147
How many umbrellas are there?
00:00:04.007 --> 00:00:09.017
To answer a question that asked us how many, we need to count.
00:00:09.647 --> 00:00:12.487
And we’ve been given a picture of some umbrellas to count.
00:00:13.677 --> 00:00:16.067
How could we make sure we count each umbrella?
00:00:16.567 --> 00:00:20.077
We could start by putting a cube next to each umbrella.
00:00:20.977 --> 00:00:21.587
There we go.
00:00:22.157 --> 00:00:29.067
There are the same number of cubes as there are umbrellas, so all we need to do is to count the cubes.
00:00:29.747 --> 00:00:42.947
One, two, three, four — that’s the top row done, let’s carry on counting — five, six, seven, eight.
00:00:43.517 --> 00:00:45.837
So, we know there are eight umbrellas.
00:00:47.117 --> 00:00:51.937
The cubes are in a tall tower and the umbrellas are making a rectangle shape.
00:00:52.757 --> 00:00:55.567
But both arrangements show the number eight.
00:00:56.357 --> 00:00:59.447
We can show the same number in different ways.
00:01:00.417 --> 00:01:05.017
We’ve counted the umbrellas and we can say there are eight.
