  # Know Your Subtraction: Subtract 4, 5 or 6 From a Number

In this worksheet, students will practise subtracting 4, 5 or 6 from a given number. (0-20) Key stage:  KS 1

Curriculum topic:   Number: Addition and Subtraction

Curriculum subtopic:   Add and Subtract to 20

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

Subtraction is the taking of one number or amount away from another.

It is the opposite of addition.

Example

Look at this subtraction.

10 - 4 = ?

Start at 10 and count 4 backwards. 10 - 4 = 6

If you use the number line, you start at the number 10 and move 4 places to the left. The number you reach is 6.

Remember that you always move to the left on a number line when you are subtracting. Let's try another one.

Example

16 - 5 = ?

Start at 16 on the number line and count 5 places to the left. What number do you reach? It's 11.

16 - 5 = 11

Does that make sense? Let's move on to some questions now.
