3-digit Subtraction Word Problems

There are two versions of each of the 3-digit subtraction sheets.

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 most of them.

Sheets 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B involve straightforward word problems with one number to subtract from another.

Sheets 3A and 3B are trickier sheets which involve selecting the correct information to use for the subtraction from a table.

4-Digit Subtraction Word Problems

These problems are similar to those above but involve 4-digit numbers up to 10,000.

Sheets 1 and 2 involve straightforward word problems with one number to subtract from another.

Sheet 3 is trickier and involves selecting the correct information to use from a table.
