Today, at Maths Time, we are going to solve problems, using our subtraction skills (takeaway).
So, you need your subtraction brains switched on, to help you solve each problem.
The first one has been done for you.
There were 6 lions sunbathing in the sun. 2 get hot and leave to find some shade. How many are left?
To help us find the answer, we are going to draw the first amount of animals in the problem. So, first, we will need 6 lions, like this:
Then, we need to take away the second amount of animals in the problem. So, we will need to take away 2, like this:
Then, we count how many lions are left. So, the answer to the problem is 4.
The subtraction sum to this problem would be 6-2=4.
Now, its your turn.
1. 7 lizards are chasing insects. 4 get bored and run away. How many lizards are left?
2. 9 meerkats are looking for food. An big bird flies over and 6 run away. How many are left?
3. There are 11 zebras eating grass. 3 leave to find water. How many zebras are left?
4. There were 15 elephants sleeping on the hay. 5 woke up and walked away. How many elephants are still asleep?
Good luck solving the problems!
