Let’s solve the first problem first:

– What are the numbers you need to work with? (136 and 128)

– What do you need to find out? (How many students like oranges?)– What do you need to do with the numbers? (Add them, since the problem asks you to find out the total number of students that likes oranges.)

– Now add the ‘ones’, ‘tens’, and ‘hundreds.
