@divinedre11 For the love of all that is holy please stop teaching kids to "carry the 1". What the are actually carrying is in the TENS place, aka PLACE VALUE.
Here's how to do this 28+47. Why? Because mistakes are easier to identify.
I do things a bit differently for head calculations. Please tell me there are others out there who don't "carry the 1".
I subtract 3 from 28 to "fill" the 47 and make it 50.
Then I add the 25 to the 50 to make 75. https://t.co/tWxfrjDojL
@longislandtonv@divinedre11 Knowing the place value is instinctual just because we say carry the 1 doesn’t mean we aren’t taught the proper place value. Your so judgy. And yes I’m aware that’s not a word before grammar police show up.
i add 1 to 47 to make it 28 +48
i know that 8+8= 16 so put a 6 down and carry the 1
4+2=6 and then 6+1=7
you’re left with 76 but i subtract the 1 i added in the beginning to get 75 https://t.co/zivibVx4sZ
