We have been solving some amazing subtraction problems using lots of different efficient methods and also using number lines. Today we will be using these methods to solve some worded problems. With these questions, we need to think carefully about what information we need to take out to solve the problem.

For this first example, we have a tower made of 17 cubes in total. 6 are taken away. From this we know that we have a whole of 17 and will take away 6 cubes in the number sentence 17 - 6 =.

I have used 2 methods to find out the remaining 11 blocks.

This second example is more challenging as it is asking us to find the difference between spotty and plain blocks. First we need to count the total number of spotty then plain blocks and then use a method from this week to find the difference between the two.

Task 1:

This one is quite straight forward. There are 17 packets of crisps and 4 are given (taken) away.

Question 2, we know that we have 18 counters in total and that 14 are yellow. By taking away the 14 we will find out how many of the red counters are left. An efficient way to solve this is to partition the 14 in to 10 and 4. Taking them away in 2 parts may be easier.

Question 3 has a total of 12 books. A part of those 12 books have been read, 5 of them. We need to find how many are unread by taking the 5 away. An efficient way would be to get to ten first. As 12 is made of 10 and 2, we can partition 5 in to a part of 2 and something else. We can efficiently take these 2 parts away from 12 to find how many are unread.

Task 2:

What subtraction story could you come up with to make a problem using the picture above?

• You could work out how many cats have caught a mouse.
• You could try to find the difference between cats and mice.

Write it as a number sentence and solve it.
