Subtraction in Parts

LI:We are learning to subtract by splitting numbers into parts instead of counting down.

Exercise 1

Meera looked at 55 – 18 and said this is the same as 55 – 10 - 8 even though she did not work out the answer. How did she know?

She split 18 into 10 and 8

For each of the following problems circle true or false.

1) 41 – 15 is the same as 41 – 10 – 5 T F

2) 68 – 29 is the same as 68 – 20 – 8 T F

3) 73 – 15 is the same as 73 – 5 – 20 T F

4) 85 – 19 is the same as 85 – 11 – 8 T F

5) 43 – 29 is the same as 43 – 20 – 3 T F

6) 44 – 15 is the same as 44 – 5 – 10 T F

7) 58 – 19 is the same as 58 -12 – 7 T F

8) 36 – 17 is the same as 36 – 7 – 10 T F

Exercise 2

For each of the following fill in the box or circle.

1) 55 – 18 = 55 – 10 -8

…

(2) 65 – 19 = 65 – 9 -10

…

(3) 46 – 28 = 46 – 8 -20

…

4) 41 – 12 = 41 - 6 -6 …

(5) 94 – 25 = 94 –20- 5

(6) 62 – 28 = 62 - 20 -8 …

7) 36 – 17 = 36 –7- 10

(8) 52 – 25 = 52 - 20 -5

…

(9) 63 – 36 = 63 –30- 6

10) 73 – 15 = 73 – 10 -5 …

(11) 423 - 17 = 423 -17 …

(12) 306 – 27 = 306 -27

This is my maths follow up for this week.
