  # Subtract Two Decimal Numbers

In this worksheet, students practise subtracting decimal numbers. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Decimals

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

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

For Example:

Question:

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
