Math in My World

Example 1
The Trevino family is moving to a new city. They have driven 957 miles out of the 3,214 miles that they need to drive. How many more miles do they need to drive? 1. Subtract ones.
Regroup a ten as 10 ones.
10 ones + 4 ones = 14 ones
14 ones – 7 ones = 7 ones
2. Subtract tens.
Regroup a hundred as 10 tens.
10 tens + 0 tens = 10 tens
10 tens – 5 tens = 5 tens 3. Subtract hundreds.
Regroup a thousand as 10 hundreds.
10 hundreds + 1 hundred = 11 hundreds
11 hundreds – 9 hundreds = 2 hundreds
4. Subtract thousands.
2 thousands – 0 thousands = 2 thousands
So, 3,214 – 957 = 2,257. The Trevino family needs to drive 2,257  more miles. Example 2
The band has raised $1,345 toward new equipment. If the goal is to raise$4,275, how much money must still be raised?  1. Subtract ones.
5 – 5 = 0
2. Subtract tens.
7 – 4 = 3 3. Subtract hundreds
Regroup a thousand as 10 hundreds.
12 – 3 = 9
4. Subtract thousands.
3 – 1 = 2
So, the band still needs to raise 2,930  The answer is correct and close to the estimate.

Explain how to check the answer to a subtraction problem by using addition. Explanation:
For example 586 -123 = 463
To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result
That is 463 + 123 = 586
So, we can check the answer to a subtraction problem by using addition.

Guided Practice

Subtract. Use addition or estimation to check.

Question 1. Explanation:

That is $2,618 +$5,709 = $8,327 Question 6. Answer: 20,838 Explanation: Given, 39,536 – 18,698 = 20,838 To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result That is 20,838 + 18,698 = 39,536 Question 7. Answer: 2,84,781 Explanation: Given, 847,311 – 562,530 = 2,84,781 To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result That is 2,84,781 + 562,530 = 847,311 Question 8. Answer: 71,809 Explanation: Given, 93,458 – 21,649 = 71,809 To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result That is 71,809 + 21,649 = 93,458 Question 9. Answer: 21,388 Explanation: Given, 78,215 – 56,827 = 21,388 To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result That is 21,388 + 56,827 = 78,215 Question 10. Answer:$3,945

Explanation:
Given, $18,345 –$14,400 = $3,945 To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result That is$3,945 + $14,400 =$18,345

Question 11. Explanation:
Given, 629,843 – 216,954 = 4,12,889
To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result
That is 4,12,889  + 216,954 = 629,843

Subtract. Use addition or estimation to check. Use the place-value chart to set up the problem.

Question 12.
961,344 – 345,822 = ____ Explanation: Question 13.
Do you prefer to use addition or estimation to check? Explain.

Explanation:
For example ,
To estimate
Let  8,346 + 7,208 = 15,554
round to the nearest hundred we get
8,300 + 7,200 = 15,500
So,  15,500 is nearest to 15,554

or

Given, 8,845 – 627 = 8,218
To check , we can add the subtrahend to the result
That is 8,218  + 627 = 8,845

Problem Solving

Question 14.
Mathematical PRACTICE 5 Use Math Tools There are a total of 1,569 tickets for a concert. On the first day of sales, 875 tickets were sold. The following day an additional 213 tickets were sold. How many tickets are still available?
Answer: 1,842 tickets are still available

Explanation:
Given,
On the first day of sales, 875 tickets were sold.
The following day an additional 213 tickets were sold.
875 + 213 = 1,148
There are a total of 1,569 tickets for a concert.
Then, 1,569 – 1,148 = 1,842
So, 1,842 tickets are still available

Question 15.
A mountain is 29,135 feet tall. From base camp at 17,600 feet, a climber hiked 2,300 feet. How much farther does the climber have before reaching the top of the mountain?
Answer: The climber have  9,235 feet before reaching the top of the mountain

Explanation:
Given,
From base camp at 17,600 feet, a climber hiked 2,300 feet.
17,600 + 2,300 = 19,900
A mountain is 29,135 feet tall.
Then, 29,135 – 19,900 = 9,235
So, The climber have  9,235 feet before reaching the top of the mountain

Question 16.
John Adams was born in 1732 and became President in 1797. Harry S. Truman was born in 1884 and became President in 1945. Who was older when he became President?
Given, John Adams was born in 1732 and became President in 1797.
1797 – 1732 = 65
The age of  John Adams when he became president is 65
Harry S. Truman was born in 1884 and became President in 1945.
1945 – 1884 = 61
The age of  Harry S. Truman when he became president is 61
So, John Adams  is older when he became President

Question 18.
? Building on the Essential Question Why is it important to line up the digits in each place-value position when subtracting?
Answer: In cases where you are subtracting two decimals that extend to different place values, it often makes sense to add extra zeros to make the two numbers line up , this makes the subtraction a bit easier to follow.
