#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will add together five single-digit numbers.

Example

Find the total of these five single-digit numbers.

2 + 6 + 5 + 8 + 2 =

The order in which you add numbers is not important, but we can look at ways that make it easier to add all the numbers together.

2 + 6 + 5 + 8 + 2

Look for pairs that add to 10.

Here, the final 8 + 2 = 10

The 6 + 5 = 11

So, we have 2 + 11 + 10

which is 13 + 10 = 23

In this activity, we will look for easy ways to add the numbers together.
