Write a sentence in your own words explaining what it means to infer or make an inference.
To infer is to make an educated guess. For example, if we look at the cover of the book "Go, Dog, Go!" we would read the title and look at the picture on the cover and we might infer that a dog is driving fast or trying to get somewhere. We can't tell if the dog is driving fast or slow, and we don't know where he is going, but we just made an inference based on what we already know.

There are 42 dogs signed up to compete in a dog show. There are 25 small dogs and 8 medium dogs signed up. The rest are large dogs. How many large dogs are signed up for the dog show?
To find out how many large dogs are signed up for the dog show, you first have to add the number of small dogs to the number of medium dogs. 25+8=33. There are 42 dogs signed up in total. Now, we must subtract the number of small and medium dogs from the total number of dogs. 42-33=9. There are 9 large dogs signed up for the dog show.
What is the noun in the sentence? I went to the beach this summer.
Remember, a noun is a person, place, or thing. The noun in the sentence, "I went to the beach this summer" is beach. A beach is a place, and remember, a noun is a person, place, or thing.
