3rd Grade Addition and Subtraction

3-digit and 4-digit Word Problems

Each sheet consists of a range of 5 addition and subtraction word problems with numbers up to thousands.

There is a space on each sheet for working out, so that your child can write out the problem and solve it.

We have split the worksheets up into 3-digit word problems and 4-digit word problems.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • add and subtract numbers with 3-digit and 4-digit numbers;
  • solve addition and subtraction word problems with and without regrouping.
  • recognise the language used in addition and subtraction - sum, total, difference, how many more, etc.
  • solve problems involving more than 1 step.

3rd Grade Addition and Subtraction Word Problems

3-digit Addition and Subtraction Word Problems

There are two versions of each sheet.

The first version (version A) contains problems where no regrouping is needed.

The second version (version B) contains similar problems but regrouping is needed to solve them.

Answers have been provided with each sheet, along with the calculation needed to solve the problem.

The following sheets are all 1-step addition or subtraction word problems.

4-digit Addition and Subtraction Word Problems

The word problems all involve either addition or subtraction (both with and without regrouping).

Harder 2-Step Addition and Subtraction Word Problems

These problems are trickier than those above.

Each problem involved two steps to solve, and may involve just addition, just subtraction or both operators.

There are 4 problems on each sheet, and more space to work out the solutions.
