Addition Word Problems 3rd Grade

Addition Problems with 3- and 4-digit numbers

Each sheet consists of adding two or three 3- or 4-digit numbers.

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 up two or three numbers with 3 or 4 digits;
  • solve addition word problems.
  • extract the relevant information to solve an addition problem

Addition Word Problems 3rd Grade

The questions on the 3-digit sheets and 4-digit sheets are very similar to each other, so 4-digit addition problems sheets are very similar to the 3-digit addition problems sheets but with larger numbers.

The sheets get gradually harder within each section:

  • Sheet 1 and 2 consist of solving basic problems with 2 addends.
  • Sheet 3 consists of solving basic problems with 3 addends.
  • Sheet 4 consists of selecting the correct information from a table of information to solve the addition problem (with 2 or 3 addends)
