1. Rachael has 49 hens and she gives 12 hens to her sister. How many hens does she have now?

Number of hens Rachael has = 49

Number of hens she gave her sister = 12

Therefore, number of hens left with her = 49 - 12 = 37

Number of birds sitting on a tree = 63

Number of birds flew away = 11

Therefore, number of hens left with her = 63 - 11 = 52

3. A fruit seller had 98 apples. He sold 55 apples out of it. How many apples were with him?

Number of apples a fruit seller has = 98
