QUESTION 1 of 10

Addition and subtraction family facts normally come in FOURS

There are TWO addition facts and TWO subtraction facts.

 

If we know just one of them, we can always work out the other three.

 

If we know the addition fact that

3 + 5 = 8

we can say that the other addition fact in this family is

5 + 3 = 8

 

The subtraction facts in this family will be

8 - 5 = 3

and

8 - 3 = 5

 

Example

What are the three related family facts for...?

15 + 18 = 33

 

Answer

For the other addition fact, just reverse the first two numbers.

The other addition fact in this family is

18 + 15 = 33

 

For the subtraction fact, we start with the biggest number.

The subtraction facts in this family will be

33 - 15 = 18

and

33 - 18 = 15

Choose the other addition fact related to:

 

5 + 7 = 12

7 + 5 = 12

12 + 5 = 7

6 - 4 = 2

10 - 6 = 4

6 - 2 = 4

2 + 4 = 6
