Use the number line to complete the following sentence: 15 take away the missing number equals six.
00:00:13.360 --> 00:00:16.390
We can use a number line to help us find the answer.
00:00:17.410 --> 00:00:24.270
The arrow shows that we should start at 15 and count back until we get to six.
00:00:26.320 --> 00:00:33.820
The question is asking us to count back from 15 to six and to find out how many jumps we need to make.
00:00:35.190 --> 00:00:57.580
So we can start at 15 and count back until we reach six: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine.
00:00:59.650 --> 00:01:04.540
We had to count back nine to get from 15 to six on the number line.
00:01:05.580 --> 00:01:07.630
The missing number is number nine.
00:01:07.920 --> 00:01:11.370
15 take away nine equals six.
