# Max Maths, Year 1, Try it, Solving addition stories

In the 'Max Maths, Year 1' book, young learners are encouraged to apply their addition skills to real-life scenarios through 'Solving addition stories'. The 'Let's Try It' section presents simple word problems that are perfect for Year 1 students to practice their early maths skills.

The first problem involves a comparison between Bala's and Melissa's families. Bala's family has 3 people, and Melissa's family has 4 people. The task for the students is to combine these numbers to find out the total number of people in both families. The second problem is about a birthday cake for Han, which initially has no candles. Tya adds 6 candles to the cake, and students need to determine how many candles are on the cake now. These exercises help reinforce the concept of addition in a fun and engaging way. For further practice, students are directed to workbook pages 87 to 91 to continue their learning journey.
