Quicklinks to ...

Each sheet consists of a range of 5 or 6 subtraction word problems.

There is a space on each sheet for working out using an appropriate method.

We have split the 3-digit subtraction worksheets up into word problems with and without regrouping.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- subtract numbers with 3-digit and 4-digit numbers;
- solve subtraction word problems with and without regrouping.
- select the appropriate information needed to solve a subtraction problem.
- learn the language used in subtraction - difference, how many left, how many more, how many fewer, etc.

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.

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.
