## Fact families

Watch this video all about creating a fact family.

Now, let’s have a look at this video about how a part whole model and a bar model can be used to understand a fact family.

## Part whole models

A part whole model can be helpful when working out simple calculations. They are a visual representation of writing out number sentences and can help solve missing fact family numbers.

Have a look at this part whole model.

The model shows that the numbers 20, 12 and 8 are part of a fact family.

The number 20 is made of two parts, 12 and 8.

The diagram can help you work out possible number sentences in the fact family.

12 + 8 = 20

8 + 12 = 20

20 - 8 = 12

20 - 12 = 8
