**Unlock the Problem**

There are more zoos in Germany than in any other country. At one time, there were 355 zoos in the United States and 414 zoos in Germany. How many zoos were there in the United States and Germany altogether?

You can use the break apart strategy to find sums.

**Math Talk**

**Mathematical Processes**

Do you think the sum will be greater than or less than 800? Explain

Answer:

The sum is greater than 800.

355 + 414 = 769

Estimate: 800

Explanation:

The Break Apart Strategy of Addition involves separately adding the ones place, tens place, hundreds place, etc. numbers.

These individual sums are then added together to get the final sum of the original numbers.

**Example 1**

Add. 355 + 414

STEP 1:

Estimate. 400 + 400 = _____

Answer:

400 + 400 = 800

Explanation:

355 is rounded to nearest hundreds as 400

414 is rounded to its nearest hundreds as 400

So, Estimate. 400 + 400 = 800

STEP 2:

Break apart the addends.

Start with the hundreds.

Then add each place value.

Answer:

Explanation:

The Break Apart Strategy of Addition involves separately adding the ones place, tens place, hundreds place, etc. numbers.

These individual sums are then added together to get the final sum of the original numbers.

So, there were _________ zoos in the United States and Germany altogether.

Answer:

700 + 60 + 9 = 769

So, there were 769 zoos in the United States and Germany altogether.

Explanation:

The Break Apart Strategy of Addition involves separately adding the ones place, tens place, hundreds place, etc. numbers.

These individual sums are then added together to get the final sum of the original numbers.

**Example 2**

Add. 343 + 259

STEP 1:

Estimate. 300 + 300 = ________

Answer:

300 + 300 = 600

Explanation:

as 343 is below 350, so 343 is rounded to 300 and

259 is greater then 250, so 259 is rounded to 300 hundred

300 + 300 = 600

STEP 2:

Break apart the addends.

Answer: 602

Explanation:

The Break Apart Strategy of Addition involves separately adding the ones place, tens place, hundreds place, etc. numbers.

These individual sums are then added together to get the final sum of the original numbers.

STEP 3:

Add the sums.

500 + 90 + 12 = __________

So, 343 + 259 = __________

Answer: 602

Explanation:

The sum of the addends are same in both the equations.

500 + 90 + 12 = 602

So, 343 + 259 = 602
