Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Addition is adding something on.

When you add things together, you get a total.




Look at this problem. A number is missing.

You need to find its value. You can use addition.


6 + ? = 17



You add a number to 6 to make 17? (17 is your total.)

17 - 6 = 11

So the missing number = 11



6 + 11 = 17
