What are 2 possible ways to solve the problem 35+17?
One possible way to solve 35+17 is to combine tens and ones. You would pull out your tens, 30 and 10, and add them together. Then pull out your ones, 5 and 7, and add them together. Then add the two totals together. 30+10=40, 5+7+12, 40+12=52. Another possible way to solve 35+17 is to get to the nearest ten. I can think which number is closest to the next ten number, or multiple of ten. 17 is closest because I only need 3 more to get to 20. I can pull 3 out of 35 to make it 3+32=35. I can add the 3 to 17 to get 20, 3+17=20. Then I can add 20+32 to get 52, 20+32=52.
