90-40=50+0

using 0 more than once….is that allowed in this problem?

80-10=60+10

using 0 more than once….is that allowed in this problem?

You can only use 0 one time.

55-12=43+0

51+32=83-0

21+11=32+0

60-40=10+10

60-10=25+25

9-3=3+3

90-30=30+30

55-12=43+0

52-41=3+8

78-40=23+15

70-50=50+40

19-78=35+24

30+30= 50=10

It is suppose to be 30+30 = 50+10

It is cause it is 30+30=50+10

30-20=1+9

93-13=44+36

19+12=43-12

87-23=49+15

09-01=01+07

45-20=16+9

45-20=9+16

90-80=10+9

50-25=17+8

My answer is 89- 76=13+00

My answer is 89- 76=13+00 this is my answer

99-45=45+45

60 – 10 = 25 + 25

32-10=11+11

98-32=54+10

89-14=63+12

78-54=01+23

96 – 32 = 64

50 + 14 =64

68-36=12+20

35 + 45 = 80 + 10

90-40 = 25+25

9-3 = 5 + 1

60-20=10+30

78-40=23+15

98-32=56+10

89-14=63+12

98-10=63+25

98 – 74 = 23 + 01

98-10=63+25

Hi, I´m a teacher. This website is so cool 🙂

98 – 52=36 +10 (Ivy)

69 – 08 = 24 + 37 (Ali)

97 – 06 = 73 +18 (Mrs Hamer)

80 – 36 = 19 + 25 (Luka)

98 – 16 = 50 + 32 (Aadarsh)

85 – 14 = 69 + 02 (Bayrin)

89 – 13 = 26 + 50 (Ivy)

I agree that, as written, using zero repeatedly is not allowed. However, allowing just zero to be used more than once might be a nice way for some kids to gain access. Then you could remove that allowance as a constraint to push kids’ thinking…

98-15=63+20
