### Representation of 2-digit number using the blocks

A 2-digit number has a tens place and ones place.

Here the ones place is represented as one block and tens place is represented as combination of 10 blocks as shown below:

**1 ten is represented as: **

**1 one is represented as:**

**Also 10 ones combine to make 1 ten: **

**Q: Represent the number 27 using place value block. **

Answer: The number 27 can be written as 2 tens and 7 ones.

**Q: Represent the number 43 using a place value block. **

Answer: The number 43 can be written as 4 tens and 3 ones.

### Sum of 2-digit number using the blocks

Using the blocks let us find the sum of 2-digit numbers by just adding tens blocks and ones blocks separately with the given example below:

**Q: Find the sum of 44 + 31.**

Answer:

Further it is equal to:

Now let’s, find the sum of 2-digit number by regrouping.

**Q: Add 18 and 37 **

Answer:
