  • 2. 

    What addition property is show by the following number sentence? (3+1) + 6 = 3 + (1+6)

    • A.

      Identity Property

    • B.

      Distributive Property

    • C.

      Associative Property

    • D.

      Commutative Property

    Correct Answer
    C. Associative Property
    Explanation
    The given number sentence shows the Associative Property of addition. This property states that the grouping of numbers being added does not affect the sum. In the given number sentence, the numbers are grouped differently on both sides of the equation, but the sum remains the same. This demonstrates the Associative Property.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    236-119 = n What does n equal?

    • A.

      N = 117

    • B.

      N = 355

    • C.

      N = 467

    • D.

      N = 118

    Correct Answer
    A. N = 117
    Explanation
    The correct answer is n = 117 because when you subtract 119 from 236, you get a difference of 117.

      The answer to an addition problem.

    • B.

      Any number that is subtracted or added.

    • C.

      Any number that is added.

    • D.

      The answer to a subtraction problem.

    Correct Answer
    C. Any number that is added.
    Explanation
    An addend is defined as any number that is added in an addition problem. It is one of the numbers being combined to find the total sum. In other words, an addend is a term used to describe the individual numbers that are being added together to obtain a final result.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What addition property is shown by the following number sentence? 4 + 6 = 6 + 4

    • A.

      Identity Property

    • B.

      Commutative Property

    • C.

      Distributive Property

    • D.

      Associative Property

    Correct Answer
    B. Commutative Property
    Explanation
    The commutative property states that the order in which numbers are added or multiplied does not change the result. In the given number sentence, both sides of the equation have the same sum of 10, but the order of the numbers being added is different. This demonstrates the commutative property of addition.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    329 + 468 =

    Correct Answer

    Correct Answer
    13 - 7 = 6
    Explanation
    The missing equation in the fact family is 13 - 7 = 6. This equation completes the set of related equations for the numbers 7, 13, and 6.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How much is 4 hundreds, 4 tens, and 16 ones?

    Correct Answer
    456
    Explanation
    The given number is 456, which is formed by combining 4 hundreds, 4 tens, and 16 ones.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Write a number sentence to solve the following problem, use "n" as your variable for what you are trying to find.  (do not answer the question, "n" will be in place of the answer). Pam and Bob went to the store to buy groceries for their mother.  They have $40 to spend and the bill came out to $27.43.  How much change will they get?

    Correct Answer
    $40 - $27.43 = n
    $40.00 - $27.43 = n
    Explanation
    The number sentence is used to calculate the change that Pam and Bob will receive after buying groceries. It subtracts the total bill of $27.43 from the amount they have, which is $40. The variable "n" represents the change they will get.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Estimate to solve.  Write the estimated sum and overestimate or underestimate your answer. 568 - 335

    Correct Answer
    230 overestimate
    Explanation
    The estimated sum of 568 - 335 is 230, and it is an overestimate. This means that the actual answer is likely to be lower than 230.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Tell whether the following problem would be an overestimate or an underestimate. 498 + 334

    Correct Answer
    underestimate
    Explanation
    The given problem is an addition problem. When adding two numbers, an underestimate occurs when we round down or ignore any smaller values. In this case, the numbers 498 and 334 are being added. To underestimate the sum, we can round down 498 to 400 and round down 334 to 300. Adding these rounded numbers gives us 700, which is less than the actual sum of 832. Therefore, the answer is an underestimate.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Round to the nearest hundred to estimate the difference.  Write the estimated difference. 1,245 - 456

    Correct Answer
    700
    Explanation
    To estimate the difference between 1,245 and 456 to the nearest hundred, we round both numbers to the nearest hundred. 1,245 rounds to 1,200 and 456 rounds to 500. The difference between these rounded numbers is 700.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What is the sum of 456 and 523?

    Correct Answer
    979
    Explanation
    The sum of 456 and 523 is 979.

    Rate this question:

    What is the sum of 947 and 328?

    Correct Answer
    1,275
    1275
  • 16. 

    What is 500 - 328?

    Correct Answer
    172
    Explanation
    The correct answer is obtained by subtracting 328 from 500. This can be done by subtracting the ones place (0-8) which gives us 2, then subtracting the tens place (0-2) which gives us 7, and finally subtracting the hundreds place (5-3) which gives us 2. Therefore, the answer is 172.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Which number would make this number sentence TRUE? 26 + y < 34

    • A.

      Y = 4

    • B.

      Y = 10

    • C.

      Y = 8

    • D.

      Y = 13

    Correct Answer
    A. Y = 4
    Explanation
    In order to make the number sentence 26 + y < 34 true, the value of y must be less than 8. Among the given options, y = 4 is the only value that satisfies this condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    What symbol would fit in this number sentence? 20 ____  13 + 9

    • A.

    • C.

      +

    • D.

      =

    Correct Answer
    A.
    Explanation
    The symbol that would fit in this number sentence is the greater than symbol (>), as it indicates that the sum of 13 and 9 is greater than 20.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    What is 234 - 136?

    Correct Answer
    98
