## Tens and Ones:

The two digits of a two-digit number represent the number of tens and ones.

• 37 has 2 digits.
• 37 stands for 3 tens and 7 ones.
• The 3 in 37 is the tens digit.
• The 7 in 37 is the one digit.

Let us understand that better with the help of the following examples

Count the tens and ones and write the number.

1. Match the numbers with tens and ones.

### Understanding Tens Digit & One’s Digit:

The tens place digit is the left-sided digit of a two-digit number.

The place digit is the right-sided digit of a two-digit number.

• 46 stands for 4 tens and 6 ones.
• The left-side digit, 4 in 46, is the tens digit.
• The right-side digit, 6 in 46, is the one digit.

### Drawing a Model for a Two-Digit Number:

Now we will learn how to draw a model to show the tens and ones in a two-digit number.

Draw a model to show the tens and ones.

• Draw a line for each ten.
• Draw a dot for each one.

Example:

1. Jeevan has 26 bouncing balls.

Draw a model to show 26.

Steps to draw a model:

Step – 1: Read the question carefully.

Step – 2: Observe tens place digit and draw a line for each ten.

Step 3: Observe one’s place digit and draw a dot for each one.

Jeevan has 26 bouncing balls.

2 tens and 6 ones.

### Counting the Tens and Ones in a Two-Digit Number:

First, we count the lines in the model to write the tens digit on the left.

Next, we count the dots in the model to write one digit on the right.

Examples:

Count the Tens and Ones.

Count the Tens and Ones.

2. Nidhi draws the model below to show a number.

What number is Nidhi showing?

Steps to solve the problem:

Step – 1: Read the question carefully.

Step – 2: Count the lines in the picture and write the tens digit.4

Step 3: Count the dots in the picture and write the one digit.2

Step 4: Write the number.42

Activity:

Color the boxes that have numbers with tens digit as 4.

#### Exercise

1. Which number is represented here?

2. Draw a model to show the number 62.

3. Ranjith has 49 buttons. Draw his buttons so that a friend can see that there are 49 buttons without counting them one by one.

4. Manoj has 52 cupcakes at his party. Draw a model to show 52.

5. Devi is collecting data on the number of hours of daylight in the fall and winter. She records data for 85 days. Draw a model to show 85.
