if the one is 5 and the hundreds is 8, then it is 5._8, and 5 + 8 + _ = 16, so you subtract 5+8 from 16 and get 3, so the number is 5.38

8 __ 5

Rounded to the nearest ten, it's 8 __ 0

8 + 0 + x = 16

x must be 8.

880 = 8 + 8 + 0 = 16

Cody -- I don't think you read the problem correctly.

Did you forget to round the number to the nearest 10?

We all make mistakes, Cody. One of the most intelligent math and physics teachers I know recently told me that he can't add a column of numbers.
