# Putting Parts Together – Addition Equations and Problems

Sep 24, 2022

## Introduction

1 red balloon and 9 blue balloons. How many in all?

The parts are 1 and 9

The parts are 1 and 9

Now we will add the parts to give the whole, again the whole is an addition

The addition equation is 1 + 9 = 10

So, there are 10 balloons in all.

### Examples

Example 1:

2 green ice creams and 6 yellow ice creams. How many in all?

The parts are 2 and 6

The parts are 2 and 6

Now we will add the parts to get the whole, again the whole is an addition

The addition equation is 2 + 6 = 8

So, there are 8 ice creams in all.

### Higher – Order Thinking

2 apples, 6 oranges, 2 kiwis, and 5 bananas. How many fruits in all?

Draw the picture and write the addition equation.

Solution:

2 + 6 + 2 + 5 = 15
