We will solve here some of the word problems on addition and subtraction of 4-digit numbers. We will apply the same method while adding and subtracting the word problems.
1. In a village, there are 2520 males and 1840 females. What is the population of the village?
Number of males in the village = 2520
Number of females in the village = 1840
Therefore, total number of population of the village = 2520 + 1840
2. In a library, there are 3210 books on Science, 1028 books on Maths and 565 books on English literature. How many books are there in the library?
Number of books on Science = 3210
Number of books on Maths = 1028
Number of books on English literature = 565
Therefore, total number of books in the library = 3210 + 1028 + 565
3. There are 5650 wheat bags in a godown. 2320 bags are taken out for distribution. How many are left?
Total number of wheat bags in a godown = 5650
Number of wheat bags taken out for distribution = 2320
Number of wheat bags are left = 5650 - 2320
4. In a school, there are 4000 children. If 1268 are girls, how many are boys?
Total number of children in a school = 4000
Number of children are girls = 1268
Number of children are boys = 4000 - 1268
5. In test cricket, Raghav scored 2468 runs in first four years, 4552 runs in the next four years and 2675 runs in the other four years. How many runs did Ron score altogether?
