In this activity, we will be using our addition and subtraction skills in order to solve multi-step worded problems.
When solving these problems, read each question at least twice and look for highlighted words and numbers to help you.
A rugby stadium has 24,567 seats.
12,456 seats are for season ticket holders, 1,745 seats are in boxes and 2,345 are for guests of the club.
How many seats are left to sell?
Solve this problem in steps:
Add the total number of seats already used:
12,456 + 1,745 + 2,345 = 16,546
Subtract the number used from the total number of seats:
24,567 - 16,546 = 8,021
8,021 seats are left to sell.
Happy with that?
