Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will learn how to find the difference between two numbers.

For Example:


Find the difference between  31.95 and 4.78.



"Finding the difference" is the same as subtracting, so we need to work out 31.95 - 4.78

We line up the decimal points and then subtract, remembering to borrow from the 9 because we can't do 5 - 8.

  3 1 . 9 5

4 . 7 8

2 7 . 1 7


So 31.95 - 4.78 = 27.17
