98 + 4 -2 =100

3 (16 +12) + 16 = 100

5 (20)  = 100                                                  4 (16) + 3 (12) + 4 (4)  = 100

10 by 10 is 100

The same number of dots on top can weigh different amounts.
How much does yours weigh?

5 by 20 is 100.
Plates can cover the cracks on the bottom to have the project stay together.

5 times 20 is 100
Axles or connectors can keep beams together.

100 dots
Adding more sticking out to add more needed dots adds only the ones that are not connected.
Example: When needing one more dot, he stuck a 2 stud beam with one stud connected and one over the edge.

Making an outline and counting the dots in boxes makes it much easier to check the count.
