Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

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.

 

Answer:

"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
