### Ms. Brooks' 4th grade class is playing a game in which each team completes a puzzle. To place the final piece, John must pull a number that will finish the following equation: 6,000 + 6,000 + n + 200 + 9 = 12,709 Which of the following numbers does he need to pull?

• A.

N = 500

• B.

N = 700

• C.

N = 2,000

• D.

n = 7,000

A. N = 500
Explanation
In order to find the value of n, we need to solve the equation. By combining like terms, we have 12,709 = 12,209 + n. To isolate n, we subtract 12,209 from both sides of the equation, giving us n = 500. Therefore, John needs to pull the number 500 to complete the puzzle.
