### Number Line Addition and Subtraction Examples

#### Example 1) Use the number line below to work out 6 + 3.

We need to start at number 6.

We need to count (or jump) on 3 ones.

This gives us: 6 + 3 = 9

#### Example 2) Use the number line below to work out 17 − 4.

We need to start at number 17.

We need to count (or jump) back 4 ones.

We end up at 13.

This gives us: 17 − 4 = 13

#### Example 3) Use the number line below to work out 57 + 6.

We need to start at number 57.

We need to count (or jump) on 6 ones.

This gives us: 57 + 6 = 63

#### Example 4) Use the number line below to work out 73 − 5.

We need to start at number 73.

We need to count (or jump) back 5 ones.

We end up at number 68.

This gives us: 73 − 5 = 68

#### Example 5) Use the number line to find the missing number: 38 + ___ = 43.

We need to start at number 38 and fill in the number line up to 43.

We need to count (or jump) on by ones until we get to number 43.

We needed to count on (or jump) 5 ones.

This gives us: 38 + 5 = 43

#### Example 6) Use the number line to find the missing number: 54 − ___ = 47.

Our first step is to start at number 54 and complete the number line back to 44 (we could stop counting back when we get to 47 if we wanted to).

We need to count (or jump) back by ones until we get to number 47.

We needed to count back (or jump back) 7 ones.
