Look at this picture:

 

  

 

Count all the rabbits:

     1      2      3      4      5      6      7

 

The whole group has 7 rabbits.

 

Count the group that is crossed out:

 

 
     1      2

 

2 rabbits are crossed out.

 

Count the group that is left when we start with 7 and take away 2.

 

    1      2      3      4      5

  

When you start with 7 and take away 2, you are left with 5.

 

There are 5 rabbits left.   

 

7 - 2 = 5

 

Let's have a go at some questions - they're not all about rabbits!
