There are 25 blue and 35 red marbles in a bag. Find the total number of marbles in the bag.
 a. 60 b. 70 c. 57 d. 65

#### Solution:

Total number of marbles in the bag = number of blue marbles + number of red marbles

25 = 20 + 5
35 = 30 + 5
[Break the numbers into tens and ones.]

(20 + 30) + (5 + 5)
[Add the tens and ones separately.]

= 50 + 10 = 60

So, there are a total of 60 marbles in the bag.

#### Solution:

Total distance traveled during the day = Distance traveled in the morning + Distance traveled in the afternoon + Distance traveled in the evening.

[Break the numbers into tens and ones.]

(70 + 10) + (2 + 8)
[Add the tens and ones separately.]

= 80 + 10 = 90
