**Tens & Ones, Nuts & Carrots**

Question 1.

Tell how many tens and ones there are in each set of base ten pieces. Then write an equation to show the total.

ex

a.

Answer:

Explanation:

Number of Tens = 4 = 4 × 10 = 40.

Number of ones = 7 = 7 × 1 = 7.

Total = Number of Tens + Number of ones

= 40 + 7

= 47.

b.

Answer:

Explanation:

Number of Tens = 7 = 7 × 10 = 70.

Number of ones = 1 = 1 × 1 = 1.

Total = Number of Tens + Number of ones

= 70 + 1

= 71.

c.

Answer:

Explanation:

Number of Tens = 7 = 7 × 10 = 70.

Number of ones = 0.

Total = Number of Tens + Number of ones

= 70 + 0

= 70.

d.

Answer:

Explanation:

Number of Tens = 5 = 5 × 10 = 50.

Number of ones = 2 = 2 × 1 = 2.

Total = Number of Tens + Number of ones

= 50 + 2

= 52.

Question 2.

Tell how many dimes and pennies there are in each box. Then write an equation to show the total.

ex

a.

Answer:

Explanation:

Value of number of dimes = 3 = 3 × 10¢ = 30¢.

Value of number of pennies = 2 × 1 = 2¢.

Total amount = Value of number of dimes + Value of number of pennies

= 30¢ + 2¢

= 32¢.

b.

Answer:

Explanation:

Value of number of dimes = 5 = 5 × 10¢ = 50¢.

Value of number of pennies = 1 × 1 = 1¢.

Total amount = Value of number of dimes + Value of number of pennies

= 50¢ + 1¢

= 51¢.

c.

Answer:

Explanation:

Value of number of dimes = 7 = 7 × 10¢ = 70¢.

Value of number of pennies = 5 = 5 × 1 = 5¢.

Total amount = Value of number of dimes + Value of number of pennies

= 70¢ + 5¢

= 75¢.

d.

Answer:

Explanation:

Value of number of dimes = 1 = 1 × 10¢ = 10¢.

Value of number of pennies = 5 = 5 × 1 = 5¢.

Total amount = Value of number of dimes + Value of number of pennies

= 10¢ + 5¢

= 15¢.

Question 3.

The squirrels are hiding nuts for the winter. Three of the squirrels each got 4 nuts. Five of the squirrels each got 5 nuts. How many nuts do they have in all? Show your work.

The squirrels got _____ nuts in all.

Answer:

Total number of nuts they got in all = 37.

The squirrels got __37___ nuts in all.

Explanation:

Number of squirrels got 4 nuts = 3.

Number of nuts each squirrel got = 4.

Number of squirrels got 5 nuts = 5.

Number of nuts each squirrel got = 5.

Total number of nuts they got in all = (Number of squirrels got 4 nuts × Number of nuts each squirrel got) + (Number of squirrels got 5 nuts × Number of nuts each squirrel got)

= (3 × 4) + (5 × 5)

= 12 + 25

= 37.

Question 4.

**CHALLENGE** The zookeeper brought 9 bunches of carrots for the elephants. Each bunch had 5 carrots. He gave one of the elephants 24 carrots. How many carrots were left for the other elephants? Show your work.

There were ___ carrots left for the other elephants.

Answer:

Number of carrots were left for the other elephants = 21.

There were _21__ carrots left for the other elephants.

Explanation:

Number of bunches of carrots for the elephants the zookeeper brought = 9.

Number of carrots each bunch = 5.

Number of carrots one of the elephants he gave = 24.

Number of carrots were left for the other elephants = (Number of bunches of carrots for the elephants the zookeeper brought × Number of carrots each bunch) – Number of carrots one of the elephants he gave

= (9 × 5) – 24

= 45 – 24

= 21.

**Solving Presents & Parcels Story Problems**

Note to Families

Your student has spent the last several days at school working to create and solve story problems about presents and groups of 10 presents called parcels. As students work on this Home Connection, ask them to show you how working in groups of 10 rather than counting by 1s can make their work faster. You may even choose to work alongside your student and share some of your strategies to arrive at the same answer.

**Solving Presents & Parcels Story Problems**

Read the presents and parcels story problems on this sheet and the next, and choose at least four you want to solve. Then go to work. Remember—the answer is not enough. You need to show how you solved each problem, using pictures, numbers, and/or words. Be sure to work in 10s instead of 1s whenever you can.

ex Emile is having a birthday party. There are 35 presents for Emile at the party. Some of the presents are in the closet, and 19 of the presents are on the table. How many presents are in the closet?

Question 1.

Answer:

Number of presents she gets in all = 35.

Explanation:

Given:

Vincent’s birthday = June 29.

Number of presents there were on the fireplace = 12.

Number of presents there were on the table = 23.

Number of presents she gets in all = Number of presents there were on the fireplace + Number of presents there were on the table

= 12 + 23

= 35.

Question 2.

It was Jake and Sam’s birthday. There were 26 presents. Jake and Sam wanted to split them evenly, but they didn’t know how. Can you help them?

Answer:

Number of presents each gets = 13.

Explanation:

Given:

It was Jake and Sam’s birthday.

Number of presents there were = 26.

Jake and Sam wanted to split them evenly.

Number of presents each gets = Number of presents there were ÷ 2

= 26 ÷ 2

= 13.

Question 3.

It was April 24, my sister’s birthday. Six kids came to her party. She had it at Zippy’s Pizza. Each kid brought 10 presents. My mom gave her 2 presents. How many presents did she get in all?

Answer:

Number of presents she gets in all = 62.

Explanation:

Given:

My sister’s birthday = April 24.

Number of kids came to birthday party = 6.

Number of presents each kid gets = 10.

Number of presents my mom gave her = 2.

Number of presents she gets in all = (Number of kids came to birthday party × Number of presents each kid gets) + Number of presents my mom gave her

= (6 × 10) + 2

= 60 + 2

= 62.
