'Subtraction: Use number sentence to write new number sentences' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Addition and Subtraction

Curriculum subtopic:   Add/Subtract up to Four-Digit Numbers

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will learn about three more facts that you can get from just one subtraction fact.

 

For Example:

If we know that 7049 - 2143 = 4906

Then we can also write three more facts about these numbers.


7049 - 4906 = 2143
4906 + 2143 = 7049
2143 + 4906 = 7049

 

Here is an easier example:

If we know that 100 - 30 = 70

Then we can also work out the following:

 

100 - 70 = 30

70 + 30 = 100

30 + 70 = 100
