2. Then find the difference between the two numbers. For example, if you choose 1, then 7 is opposite. The difference between 1 and 7 is 6.

3. Do the same with a different number. What happens this time?

**Record a couple of examples. Are you able to explain why this happens?**

12-6=6 8-2=6 11-5=6 9-3=5

ReplyDelete11-5=6 10-4=6 9-3=6 8-2=6 7-1=6

ReplyDeleteThe answer is always 6 because the number that takes away gives the number to get to 6

12 past 9 is 12 - 9 = 3 because you need to do the example and then takeaway 12 and 9.

ReplyDelete8-2=6 3-9=6 it all makes in different Sumer

ReplyDelete12 past 9 is 12 - 9 = 3 because you need to do the example and then takeaway 12 and 9.

ReplyDelete7-1=6 10-3=6 6-0=6 15-9=6 4+2=6 12-5=6

ReplyDeleteIf you + and - your sum will be 6.

12-5=6 10-3=6 6+0=6 6-0=6 7-1=6

ReplyDeleteIf you + and - you sum time get six.

12 and 6 9 and 3 7 and 1 10 and 4

ReplyDelete12-6=6. I know that 12-6=6 because half of twelve is 6 and 6+6=12

ReplyDelete11-7=4. I know 11-7=4 because 4+7=11

9-3=6 12-6=6 10-4=6 8-2=6

ReplyDelete12-6=6. I know that 12-6=6 because half of twelve is 6 and 6+6=12

ReplyDelete11-7=4. I know 11-7=4 because 4+7=11

Have another look Chennell. Is 11 opposite 7? Have another go explaining why the answer is always the same.

Delete7-1=6

ReplyDelete8-2=6

9-3=6

10-4=6

All of these are 6 because on the clock the numbers are opposite.

Great examples Akeemat. Have another a go at explaining why the answer is always 6. Why might that be?

Delete12-6=6

Delete8-2=6

7-1=6

10-4=6

9-3=6

12-6=6 9-3=6 10-4=6

ReplyDeleteI know because all you have to do is look at the numbers which one is opposite and take away and you will get the answer
