**Solving Subtraction Problems**

Family Note Today your child learned trade-first subtraction, a method for solving subtraction problems that involves making all of the necessary trades before subtracting. Trade-first subtraction builds on children’s understanding of place value and helps them solve subtraction problems more efficiently. The example below shows the trade-first method.

Fill in the unit box. Then solve each problem. Choose a strategy that works best for you. You may use your estimates to check your work.

Example:

Question 1.

Estimate: ________

Answer:

Estimate: 380 – 300 = 80

Explanation:

As 5 is less than 6, so we will carry forward a digit and transferred from one column of digits to another digit. So the subtraction of 375 – 296 is 79.

Question 2.

Estimate: _________

Answer:

Estimate:

120 – 90 = 30.

Explanation:

As 5 is less than 7, so we will carry forward a digit and transferred from one column of digits to another digit. So the subtraction of 115 – 87 is 28.

Question 3.

Estimate: ________

Answer:

Estimate:

500 – 370 = 130

Explanation:

As 3 is less than 8, so we will carry forward a digit and transferred from one column of digits to another digit. So the subtraction of 503 – 368 is 135.
