Problem solving practice Week 2 Term 2.

WALT: solve tricky problems using different strategies.

So I did a number line, 54 to 232 then I add 6 so that made 60 then add 40 so that was 100 then I add 100 and that added up to 200 then I add 30 so that made 230 then I added 2 and that added up to 232.

Then I did 6 + 2 = 8 then I did 40 + 30 = 70 then I did 100 + 70 and that = 170, and 8 + 170 = 178.
So the answer is 170
