**1.** Select the greater number and subtract the smaller number from it:

(i) 9, 19

(ii) 75, 57

(iii) 69, 96

(iv) 38, 37

(v) 351, 531

(vi) 215, 315

(ix) 4237, 3427

(x) 1117, 1171

(xi) 3725, 3275

(xii) 1002, 1020

**2.** Fill in the blanks
using the properties of subtraction:

(i) 349 - **?** = 0

(ii) 798 – 798 = **?**

(iii) 5179 - **?** = 5179

(iv) 1835 – 0 = **?**

(v) ** ? **= 1234 = 0

(vi) ** ? **– 5712 = 0

(vii) 2739 – 0 = **?**

(viii) 9135 - ** ? **= 9135

**3.** Subtract the following:

(i) 56 – 45 = **?**

(ii) 556 – 445 = **?**

(iii) 5556 – 4445 = **?**

**4.** (i) The sum of two numbers
is 588. If one of the numbers is 231, find the other.

(ii) Illustrate that subtraction process is the reverse of addition process.

**5.** (i) Subtract 0 from 379

(ii) Subtract 4785 from 4785

**6.** Find two addition facts
from each subtraction facts:

For example:

(i) 79 – 65 = 14.

**For example: **

65 + 14 = 79 and 14 + 65 = 79

(ii) 367 – 256 = 111.

(iii) 5417 – 4507 = 910.

(iv) 3928 – 1927 = 2001.

**7.** Find two subtraction
facts from each addition facts:

**For example: **

(i) 50 + 60 = 110.

**Solution: **

110 - 60 = 50 and 110 - 50 = 60

(ii) 153 + 73 = 226.

(iii) 378 + 122 = 500.

(iv) 3578 + 2222 = 5800.

(v) 2216 + 2152 = 4368.
