00:00:02.960 --> 00:00:04.720
Here are four number cards.
00:00:05.120 --> 00:00:08.320
Two, three, four, and seven.
00:00:09.760 --> 00:00:13.240
Layla uses each card wants to make a four-digit number.
00:00:15.760 --> 00:00:33.760
She places a) the four in the tens column, b) the two such that it has a higher value than any of the other digits, and c) the remaining two digits such that the seven has the higher value.
00:00:35.440 --> 00:00:39.280
Write a digit in each box to show Layla’s number.
00:00:40.760 --> 00:00:43.280
There’s a lot of information in this question.
00:00:44.480 --> 00:00:45.880
Let’s try to break it down.
00:00:47.560 --> 00:00:55.040
This is a really important piece of information: “Layla uses each card once.”
00:00:55.040 --> 00:01:00.080
And we know we’re making a four-digit number because there are four empty cards.
00:01:01.320 --> 00:01:05.680
First, Layla places the four in the tens column.
00:01:07.280 --> 00:01:15.240
This is the ones column, this is the tens column, the hundreds, and the thousands.
00:01:16.440 --> 00:01:19.120
So we need to place the four in the tens column.
00:01:20.760 --> 00:01:27.400
We need to place the two card so that it has a higher value than any of the other digits.
00:01:28.600 --> 00:01:31.840
So we need to place the two in the thousands column.
00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:36.640
This is the highest value that the two digit could have.
00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:49.840
And with the remaining two digits, we need to place the seven so that it has the higher value. so we need to place the seven in the hundreds column.
00:01:51.080 --> 00:01:55.200
We’ve used the two, the four, and the seven digit cards.
00:01:56.440 --> 00:02:00.040
All that’s left to do is place the three in the ones column.
00:02:01.200 --> 00:02:06.200
We’ve used each card once and we’ve made a four-digit number.
00:02:07.760 --> 00:02:12.400
Layla’s number is 2743.
