## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 4 Answer Key Chapter 2 Lesson 7 Subtract Across Zeros

**Math in My World**

Example 1

Each fourth grade class has a goal to collect 5,100 pennies for charity. How many more pennies do the fourth graders in Mr. Blake’s class need to reach their goal?

Find 5,100 – 3,520

1. Subtract ones.

0 ones – 0 ones = 0 ones

2. Subtract tens.

Regroup 1 hundred as 10 tens.

10 tens – 2 tens = 8 tens

3. Subtract hundreds.

Regroup one thousand as 10 hundreds.

10 hundreds – 5 hundreds = 5 hundreds

4. Subtract thousands.

4 thousands – 3 thousands = 1 thousand

So, Mr. Blake’s class needs 1580 more pennies.

Example 2

There were 30,090 fans at the stadium on Saturday. The next Saturday, there were 22,977 fans. How many more fans were at the stadium on the first Saturday than the second Saturday?

Find 30,090 – 22,977.

1. Subtract ones.

Regroup 1 ten as 10 ones.

10 ones – 7 ones = 3 ones

2. Subtract tens.

8 tens – 7 tens = 1 ten

3. Subtract hundreds.

Regroup 1 ten thousand as 10 thousands. Regroup 1 thousand as 10 hundreds.

10 hundreds – 9 hundreds = 1 hundred

4. Subtract thousands.

9 thousands – 2 thousands = 7 thousands

5. Subtract ten thousands.

2 ten thousands – 2 ten thousands = 0 ten thousands

So, 30,090 – 22,977 = 7,113

There were 7,113 more fans than the first Saturday.

Explain how to subtract 42,956 from 55,000.

Answer: 12,044

Explanation:

Given, 55,000 – 42,956

1. Subtract ones.

Regroup 1 ten as 10 ones.

10 ones – 6 ones = 4 ones

2. Subtract tens.

10 tens – 6 tens = 4 ten

3. Subtract hundreds.

Regroup 1 ten thousand as 10 thousands. Regroup 1 thousand as 10 hundreds.

10 hundreds – 10 hundreds = 0 hundred

4. Subtract thousands.

4 thousands – 2 thousands = 2 thousands

5. Subtract ten thousands.

2 ten thousands – 1 ten thousands = 1 ten thousands

So, 55,000 – 42,956 = 12,044
