00:00:00.880 --> 00:00:01.960
There are two baskets.
00:00:02.640 --> 00:00:04.600
Each basket has 11 marbles inside.
00:00:05.320 --> 00:00:07.400
How many marbles are there altogether?
00:00:09.040 --> 00:00:14.440
When we’re solving word problems, we always highlight the key numbers to begin with.
00:00:15.600 --> 00:00:17.240
We know there are two baskets.
00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:21.280
And each basket has 11 marbles.
00:00:22.560 --> 00:00:26.160
And the question asks us how many marbles altogether.
00:00:27.480 --> 00:00:35.600
We can draw a quick sketch or model to help us visualize the problem or picture it in our head.
00:00:36.600 --> 00:00:42.520
So we have two baskets, each with 11 marbles inside.
00:00:43.640 --> 00:00:47.640
We could say there are two groups of 11.
00:00:48.640 --> 00:00:51.480
So now we can record our equation.
00:00:52.480 --> 00:00:56.480
We know that groups of is the same as saying multiply.
00:00:57.520 --> 00:01:04.200
So our equation is two multiplied by 11, which is the same as 11 multiplied by two.
00:01:05.320 --> 00:01:10.440
We can calculate the answer using a place value chart to help us.
00:01:11.400 --> 00:01:17.640
Let’s start with the biggest number 11 which has one 10 and a one.
00:01:18.440 --> 00:01:19.600
And we’re multiplying by two.
00:01:20.520 --> 00:01:21.880
Let’s start in the ones column.
00:01:22.720 --> 00:01:24.440
We have two multiplied by one.
00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:27.360
Two times one, this makes two.
00:01:28.800 --> 00:01:33.280
Moving over into the 10ns column, we have to multiply this digit by two also.
00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:36.320
One multiplied by two equals two.
00:01:37.880 --> 00:01:42.120
There are 22 marbles altogether.
00:01:42.880 --> 00:01:48.280
We multiplied 11 by two to find the answer.
