**What are one-digit numbers?**

One-digit numbers are the numbers made up of only one digit i.e., ones.

For example, 1, 2, 3 etc.

**Adding three one-digit numbers**

2 + 4 + 1

**To add three one-digit numbers, we can start with adding any two digits first.**

2 + 4 = 6

6 + 1 = 7

So, 2 + 4 + 1 = 7

**Changing order**

For adding 3 one-digit numbers, we can change the order of the numbers.

For example:

(3 + 1 + 2) = (1 + 2 + 3) = (3 + 2 + 1)

This is because addition is commutative. This means that changing the order of numbers in the addition question doesn’t change the answer.

**Example**: Henry has 4 sweets. His brother gave him 1 sweet and his sister gave him 2 sweets. How many sweets does Henry have now?

4 sweets + 1 sweet + 2 sweets = 5 sweets + 2 sweets = 7 sweets

Let's try more questions.

**Question 1:**

Count the number of doughnuts.

6 + 3 + 2

= 9 + 2 = 11

**Question 2:**

Dacie has one cat in the house. He bought 2 more cats and 3 dogs. What is the total number of pets in the house?

Number of cats = 1

Number of cats bought = 2

Number of dogs = 3

Total number of pets = 1 + 2 + 3 = 6
