The diagrams at right represent piles of pennies. Homework Help ✎

Which pile has more pennies? Explain your reasoning.

Try calculating the sum of each pile.

Don't forget to state which pile has more!

Pile #1 has 81 pennies and Pile #2 has 80 pennies.

Write two different numerical expressions to represent the number of pennies in each pile.

What different ways can you calculate the sums of the piles?

For instance: Pile #1 = (6)(12) + 6 + 3

Write a number comparison statement (using > , < , or = ) to show if the number of pennies in one pile is greater than the other or if they are the same.

Remember:

> means that the number on the left is greater than the number on the right and < means that the number on the left is less than the number on the right.
