**Predict:** I predict it is going to be about addition and multiplication.

**Read:**The digit sum for 195 is 1+9+5, or 15. The digit sum for 200 is 2+0+0, or 2. Find the two consecutive numbers that have digit sums of 27 and 1

**Clarify: **Consecutive: Numbers like 1,2,3 in there order.

**Big Question:** Find the two consecutive numbers that have digit sums of 27 and 1 .

**Mathematicians Toolbox:** Draw a diagram

**Solve: **First I didn’t know what consecutive was so I got the definition (**Clarify**). Secondly I thought of what numbers could go into 27 evenly which are 9 and 3. Thirdly I thought what numbers could add up to 1 which are 1 and 0. After that I figured that three nines are 27 so If I go 999. The consecutive number relating to this question for 1 is 1000 so the answer is: 999 and 1000 because they are numbers right next to each other.

**Summary:** I definitely needed help because if I didn’t know what consecutive meant than I couldn’t of gotten the answer.
