Think addition for subtraction. Solve each problem.

When three is subtracted from seventeen it gives the value 14 as shown below.
i.e.Â  17 -3 = 14

Let the unknown number be x
3 + x = 17
x = 17 – 3
x = 14
Therefore 3 +14 is equal to 17.

When five are subtracted from twenty it gives the value 15 as shown below.
i.e.Â  20 – 5 = 15

Let the unknown number be x
5 + x = 20
x = 20 – 5
x = 15
Therefore 5 +15 is equal to 20 .

When 5 are subtracted from Nineteen it gives the value 14 as shown below.
i.e.Â  19 – 5 = 14

Let the unknown number be x
5 + x = 19
x = 19 – 5
x = 14
Therefore 5 +14 is equal to 19 .

When 1Â  is subtracted from Eighteen Â it gives the value 17 as shown below.
i.e.Â  18 – 1 = 17

Let the unknown number be x
1 + x = 18
x = 18 – 1
x = 17
Therefore 1 +17 is equal to 18 .

When 4 Â are subtracted from Four Â  it gives the value 11 as shown below.
i.e.Â  15 – 4 = 11

Let the unknown number be x
4 + x = 15
x = 15 – 4
x = 11
Therefore 4 +11 is equal to 15.

When 2 are subtracted from Fourteen Â  it gives the value 12 as shown below.
i.e.Â  14 – 2 = 12

Let the unknown number be x
2 + x = 14
x = 14 – 2
x = 12
Therefore 2 +x is equal to 14.

When 1 is subtracted from Sixteen Â  it gives the value 15 as shown below.
i.e.Â  16 – 1 = 15

Let the unknown number be x
1 + x = 16
x = 16 – 1
x = 15
Therefore 1 + 15 is equal to 16.

When 6 are subtracted from Twenty Â  it gives the value 14 as shown below.
i.e. 20Â  –Â  6 = 14

Let the unknown number be x
6 + x = 20
x = 20 – 6
x = 14
Therefore 6 + 14 is equal to 20.
