# Let’s Compare and Count: How Many More or Fewer?

Hey there, little math whizzes! 👋 Today, we’re going to have some fun with numbers. Are you ready to compare two groups and find out how many more or fewer things one group has than the other? Let’s get started! 🚀

## What does “more” and “fewer” mean?

**More**means a bigger number. If one group has more, they have**extra**things! 🟢**Fewer**means a smaller number. If one group has fewer, they have**less**things! 🔵

## Example:

Imagine you have **5 apples** 🍎 and your friend has **3 apples** 🍏.

- Who has more apples? (Hint: It’s the bigger number!)
- Who has fewer apples? (Look for the smaller number!)

Now, let’s find out **how many more** apples you have compared to your friend. To do that, you can **subtract**! Subtract 3 from 5:

**5 – 3 = 2**

So, you have **2 more apples** than your friend! 🎉

## Let’s practice:

Look at the two groups below. Can you figure out who has more and who has fewer? Then, tell us how many more or fewer there are!

**Group A** has **6 stars** ⭐

**Group B** has **4 stars** ⭐

How many more stars does Group A have?

How many fewer stars does Group B have?

You’re doing amazing! Keep practicing to become a math superstar! 🌟

**Remember:** Counting and comparing numbers is like solving a puzzle. The more you practice, the better you get!

Happy counting! 😊
