3. Give and Take
I am Kittu. This is my home. Isn't it huge? It has 100 rooms. Help me in painting some of the rooms.

I start from room 2. I add 10 to 2 to reach room 12 and paint it. To add 10 to 2, we can go all the way to the right to 10.
Then up to 11, and one step right to 12.
This is one way to go from 2 to 12.
Is there a shortcut? Of course! Follow me.
We can jump up one row.
A jump from 2 to 12 is like taking _____ steps.
Now try one jump up from 14.
14 + 10 = 24.
Colour this room.
How will I go from 22 to 41?
Jump from 22 to 42.
Then one step left. We can write it like this.
22 + 20 = 42
42 – 1 = 41
How many steps did I go in all? _____
You could also go this way:
From 22 take one step left to 21.
Then two jumps up to 41.
22 – 1 = 21
21 + 20 = 41

Is there a shortcut to do this?
65 – 30 = _____
_____ = 46 + 21
_____ = 87 – 30
66 – _____ = 11
36 = ____ + 9
45 + ____ = 99
40 + ____ = 76
____ + 26 = 75
98 = ____ + 50

Adding Made Easy
Anisha bought apples for 37 rupees. Raja bought bananas for 21 rupees. The woman selling fruits said:
37 is 30 and 7
21 is 20 and 1
So 37 and 21 make 58.
The first two, I can do.
How did she add 37 and 21 so fast?
 Let us also try. Look at this sum.
We break 26 into 20 + 6 and 43 into 40 + 3.
Then it's easy: we add 20 + 40 and 3 + 6!
The answer is 69.
 Can you do it another way? Say how.
See if you can do the same with these sums.
MANGO CHILLI GAME
Roll a pair of dice and move by adding the numbers that come on the top of both the dices.
Keep a different coloured button for each player. If you reach a mango you go forward (+). If you step on a chilli you have to go back (–). See who reaches back home first!
56 + 21 = 56 + 20 + 1
= 57 + 20
= 77
Aha!
I can do it this way also!
Now work out the steps in your mind.
Write the answers directly in the boxes.
33 + 42 = _____
_____ = 33 + 27
55 + 25 = _____
19 + 61 = _____
_____ = 34 + 63
67 + 25 = _____
_____ = 48 + 42
_____ = 53 + 64
72 + 56 = _____
Let Me Tell You a Story..........
Once a baby lion lost his way in the jungle. He started crying and called out for his mother. An old deer took pity on him. He took him to his place. But the other deer got really scared. So did their other friends  rabbits, squirrels and birds. A lion among us! Oh, no! He will eat up our babies. The old deer said  don't worry. I will warn him about this. In the morning the baby lion thanked every one and started to leave. But a rabbit said  wait, he cannot go like this! Let us count to see if he has done any mischief. We should be 240 in all. Let's count.
Tillu counted rabbits and deer. There were 27 rabbits and 48 deer
The old deer counted birds and squirrels. There were 124 birds and 38 Squirrels.
In the chapter Fun with Numbers, children would have made token cards. The same token cards should be used for exercises in addition before children do written sums. Let's add and find out how many deer and rabbits were there...
Putting all the ’s together, we get fifteen ’s
Ten ’s make one ’s and we are left with five ’s.
Now putting together all the ’s, we get seven ’s
So total number of deer and rabbit = 75
 Similarly we add the number of birds and number of squirrels.
So together birds and squirrels were 162, and deer and rabbits were 75.
The old deer said — we were 240 in number, now how many are we in all?
To find out, do the addition in the box below:
Can you guess now, if the baby lion will go back home? Has the baby lion eaten up any animal?
To find out, do the addition in the box below:
How Many Bulbs?
1. A factory made 270 bulbs on the first day. On the second day it made 123 bulbs.
How many bulbs did the factory make altogether?
First day  270 bulbs
Second day  123 bulbs
270 + 123
Is the sum more than 350
or less than 350?
I think.. 270 and 100 is 370?
The sum is more than 350.
How many altogether?
Solution:
2. A shopkeeper Rafi had 153 candles. Paras gave him 237 more candles. How many candles does Rafi have now?
237 + 153 =?
Is the sum more than 400 or less than 400?
Solution:
Work out the following story problems in the same way. Read each problem and say it in your words. Guess the answer before writing it.
A. A train compartment is carrying 132 people. Another compartment is carrying 129 people. In all, how many people are there in both the compartments?
B. Shanu found 138 pebbles. Karim found 44 pebbles.How many pebbles did they find in all?
C. A teacher kept a record of, the fruits students like. This is what she found:
Students  Oranges  Mangoes  Total 
Girls  136  240 

Boys  128  243 

Total 



Find out:
(a) How many students in the school like oranges?
(b) How many students in the school like mangoes?
(c) Altogether, how many students are there in the school?
(d) Is the number of girls more than 350 or less than 350?
