#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we are going to compare some information in a table in order to answer some questions.

Here is an example of a table:

What this table is telling us:

The table is showing some data about how much TV two children watched each day.

It tells us how much TV they each watched from Monday to Friday.

It tells us the time watched in minutes.

The table shows us the names of the two children (Amina and Dylan).

Now, let's solve a comparison problem using the information in this table.

Example

How much more TV did Dylan watch than Amina on Thursday?

We can see that on Thursday Dylan watched 40 minutes of TV.

We can see that Amina watched 30 minutes of TV on Thursday.

We need to subtract 30 from 40 to find out how many more minutes Dylan watched for:

40 - 30 = 10

Dylan watched 10 minutes more TV on Thursday.

Now it's your turn - good luck!
