  1. Should the largest number be 9? One of the rows in the ten frame is not full, so that means you can’t have the full ten frame filled, correct?

    • The way I see it is the smallest number would be 5 and the larges number would be 9. The problem does not specify that the second row of the ten frame must have any counters at all (representing 5), but does limit that row to not be full (representing at most 9).
