Worksheet on Adding and Subtracting 2-Digit Numbers

Practice the set of questions provided in the worksheet on adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers.

1. Find the sum and subtraction result as the case may be of the following:

(i) 55 + 35 = 55 + 30 + 5

= 55 + 5 + 30

= 60 + 30

= 90

(ii) 90 – 35 = 90 – 30 – 5

= 60 – 5

= 55

(iii) 45 + 25 = 45 + 20 + 5

= 45 + 5 + 20

= 50 + 20

= ______

(iv) 30 – 15 = 30 – 10 – 5

= 20 – 5

= ______

(v) 60 – 35 = 60 – 30 – 5

= 30 – 5

= ______
