NARRATOR: Hello everyone.

What are you doing?

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: Playing with your stacking meebs, of course.

How many meebs in your stack, Snoot?

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: 18! Very impressive.

What about your stack Fin?

FIN: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: 20 meebs! Wow!

That’s even more than Snoot.

I’ve got an idea.

Why not stack all your meebs together to make one super stack?

BOTH: Aha!

NARRATOR: If you add 20 to 18, how many meebs will you have altogether?

SNOOT: Er... Uh...

NARRATOR: Don’t worry Snoot.

You’ve almost got the same number of meebs, so you can work it out by doubling your 18, and then adding 2, because Fin’s got 20, 2 more than you.

2 times 18 makes 36, add 2 equals 38 meebs all together.

FIN: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: Well, if you’ve got another way of doing it Fin, go ahead.

Ah, I see.

You prefer to double your 20 meebs first, and then take away 2, because Snoot’s 18 meebs is 2 less than your 20.

2 times 20 makes 40, take away 2 equals...

38 again.

SNOOT: (ALIEN LANGUAGE)

NARRATOR: I know Snoot, it’s exactly the same as what you had before.

2 times 20 take away 2 is the same as 2 times 18 add 2.

BOTH: Aha!

NARRATOR: Right then, time to take down your stacks and make one super stack.

PLIMBLE: Plimble!

NARRATOR: Now that really is a stack!

Yours is still very good...

Ah...
