00:00:02.195 --> 00:00:05.005
Each box contains 100 paperclips.
00:00:05.885 --> 00:00:08.475
Count in hundreds to find how many there are.
00:00:09.945 --> 00:00:11.675
Write the number in words.
00:00:12.855 --> 00:00:14.755
And write the number in digits.
00:00:15.965 --> 00:00:19.935
We’re told that each of these boxes contains 100 paperclips.
00:00:20.915 --> 00:00:24.495
Now can you picture what 100 paperclips might look like?
00:00:25.485 --> 00:00:27.465
Well, this is 100 ones cubes.
00:00:27.645 --> 00:00:32.775
These are the same as 100, but we haven’t just got one box of paperclips, have we?
00:00:33.285 --> 00:00:40.455
We have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
00:00:40.775 --> 00:00:44.185
So the number of paperclips altogether looks more like this.
00:00:44.915 --> 00:00:50.485
Now, imagine having to count each individual cube to count in ones to find the answer.
00:00:51.585 --> 00:00:53.915
This will be a very long video, wouldn’t it?
00:00:54.465 --> 00:00:59.855
But because our paperclips have been grouped together in hundreds, we can count in hundreds.
00:01:01.125 --> 00:01:01.915
That’s better.
00:01:02.245 --> 00:01:07.365
Now we can do what the question asks us to do, which is to count in hundreds to find how many there are.
00:01:08.095 --> 00:01:08.655
Ready?
00:01:09.285 --> 00:01:25.505
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800.
00:01:26.145 --> 00:01:30.205
Eight boxes of 100 paperclips is 800 altogether.
00:01:31.015 --> 00:01:33.775
First, we need to write our answer in words.
00:01:34.915 --> 00:01:37.355
So we begin by writing the number eight.
00:01:38.315 --> 00:01:42.415
That’s just the same as the number after seven, E-I-G-H-T.
00:01:43.615 --> 00:01:48.005
And then we just write the word hundred, eight hundred.
00:01:51.015 --> 00:01:54.005
And finally, we need to write our answer in digits.
00:01:54.605 --> 00:02:04.645
We know that 100 is a one followed by two zeros, so the number 800 is simply the digit 8 followed by two zeros.
00:02:06.095 --> 00:02:10.605
There are eight boxes, and each box we know contains 100 paperclips.
00:02:10.915 --> 00:02:16.875
So we could find the total number of paperclips by simply skip counting in hundreds eight times.
00:02:17.405 --> 00:02:20.695
And we can write our answer in words and digits.
00:02:21.245 --> 00:02:25.805
That’s eight hundred or 800.
