  • To revise subtracting in tens and 100s  by using a 100sq and drawing own number lines

25 – 10 =      37 – 10 =      43 – 10 =      56 – 10 =      15 – 10 =

46 – 20 =      58 – 30 =      39 – 30=       48 – 30 =      89 – 60 =

Now try 10 of your own. Remember to show your working out using a number line.

  • Try these missing number calculations - 

3 + ? = 10

4 + ? = 14

10 - ? = 2

5 + ?= 16

8 + ? = 20

20 -? = 11

25 -? = 5

13 + ? = 30

14 + ? = 34

40 - ? = 20

25 + ?= 46

28 + ? = 50

60 -? = 31

25 -? = 5

113 + ? = 320

140 + ? = 334

440 - ? = 220

25 + ?= 446

288 + ? = 520

610 -? = 311

250 -? = 500

  • Missing number operations (use either + or -)

 

3 …. 7 = 10

4…. 10 = 14

10…. 8 = 2

5 ….11= 16
