Your goldfish is 4 centimetres long. It grows 6 more centimetres. Use the number line and your ruler to show how long the goldfish is now.

Length of the gold fish = 4 centimetres
Increased length of gold fish = 6 centimetres
Length of gold fish now = 4 + 6 = 10 centimetres  .

Explanation:
Draw an arrow from 0 to 4 to represent 4. Then draw an arrow 6 units to the right representing adding +6.
So, 4 + 6 =0

What is the same about your ruler and the number line? What is different?

A number line is just that – a straight, horizontal line with numbers placed at even increments along the length. It’s not a ruler, so the space between each number doesn’t matter, but the numbers included on the line determine how it’s meant to be used.
Ruler a straight strip, typically marked at regular intervals and used to draw straight lines or measure distances.

Question 1.
You swim 15 meters and take a break. Then you swim 10 meters. How many meters do you swim?

Distance covered while swimming = 15 meters
Distance covered while swimming after break = 10 metresters .
Therefore, 25 meters traveled in swimming

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 10 to represent 10. Then draw an arrow 15 units to the right representing adding +15.
So, 10 + 15 = 25

Question 2.
A ribbon is 16 yards long. You cut off 7 yards. How long is the ribbon now?

Length of the ribbon = 16 yards
Decreased in the length of the ribbon = 7 yards
Length of the ribbon now = 16 – 7 = 9 yards .

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 16 to represent 16. Then draw an arrow 7 units to the left representing Subtracting -7.
So, 16  – 7 = 9

Question 3.
A snake is 24 inches long. It sheds 14 inches of its skin. How much skin does it not shed?

Length of the snake = 24
Length of snake sheds = 14
Length of the snake didn’t shed = Total Length – shed length = 24 – 14 = 10 inches

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 24 to represent 24. Then draw an arrow 14 units to the left representing Subtracting 10
So, 24 – 14 = 10 inches .

Question 4.
A photo is 15 centimetres long. You cut off 3 centimetres from the left and 3 centimetres from the right. How long is the photo now?

Length of the photo = 15 centimetres
Length of the photo cut from left = 3 centimetres
Length of the photo cut from right = 3 centimetres
Length of the photo now = 15 – 3 – 3 = 15 – 6 = 9 centimetres

Question 5.

Question 6.
You are painting a fence that is 24 feet long. You paint 10 feet on Saturday. You paint 13 feet on Sunday. Did you finish painting the fence?

Length of the total fencing = 24 feet
Length of the fence painted on Saturday = 10 feet
Length of the fence painted on Sunday = 13 feet
Total length of the fencing painted = 10 + 13 = 23 feet.
No painting of fencing is not finished as it is painted 23 feet . still 1 feet left to paint ( 24 – 23 = 1 feet )

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 10 to represent 10. Then draw an arrow 13 units to the right representing adding 13
So, 10 + 13  = 23 feet .

You throw a disc 9 meters. On your second throw, the disc travels 3 meters more than your ﬁrst throw. How many meters did the disc travel in all?

______ meters
Length of the first disc thrown = 9 metres
Length of the disc travels in second throw = 3 meters more than your ﬁrst throw = 9 + 3 = 12
Total length the disc travels in first and second throw = 9 + 12 = 21 meters .

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 9 to represent 9. Then draw an arrow 12 units to the right representing adding 12
So, 9 + 12  = 21 meters .

### Use a Number Line to Add and Subtract Lengths Homework & Practice 12.1

Question 1.
You kick a ball 13 yards. Your friend kicks it back 9 yards. How far is the ball from you now?

Distance traveled by ball when i kicked the ball  = 13 yards
Distance traveled by ball when my friend kicked the ball = 9 yards back ward = -9 yards.
Distance of ball from me now = 13 yards – 9 yards = 4 yards.

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 13 to represent 13. Then draw an arrow 9 units to the left representing Subtracting 9
So, 13- 9 = 4 yards .

Question 2.

Length paved on Tuesday = 11 feet
Total length paved on Monday and Tuesday = 13 + 11 = 24 feet
1 feet is less to complete the length of bike path . So, Paving is not completed .

Explanation :
Draw an arrow from 0 to 13 to represent 13. Then draw an arrow 11 units to the right representing adding 11
So, 13+ 11  = 24 feets .

### Solve Length Problems Chapter Practice

12.1 Use a Number Line to Add and Subtract Lengths

Question 1.
You throw a ball 12 yards. Your friend throws it back 8 yards. How far is the ball from you now?

Distance traveled by ball when thrown by me= 12 yards
Distance traveled by my friend after throwing = – 8 yards. ( – represents back direction )
Distance of ball far from me  = 12 – 8 = 4 yards.

Explanation:
Draw an arrow from 0 to 12 to represent 12. Then draw an arrow 4 units to the left representing subtracting 4.
So, 12 – 8 = 4 yards .
