• im kinda confused so basicley just adding numbers but seperatly and on a number line?
• Yes, that is exactly correct. The point of the exercise is being able to see and understand how breaking down larger number such as 264 + 354. On a number line, we could start with 264 then depict the addition of 300 + 50 + 4. It helps you visualize the response.
• What’s a number line?
• A number line is a graphical representation of numbers along a straight line. It is used to visualize the relative position and magnitude of numbers, as well as to perform operations such as addition and subtraction. The number line typically starts with zero in the center, with negative numbers to the left and positive numbers to the right.
