890-154=736

Cool!

“Barbara has 695 marbles. She gives her sister 283 marbles. She now has 412 marbles left.” The answer doesn’t work because you can only use each number once and you’ve used “2” twice.

I’m not understanding how you got the answer.

That’s true

Barbara has 603, gave her sister 125, left with 478.

Barbara has 890 marbles. She gives her sister 154 marbles. She now has 736 marbles left.

907-586=321 (Davin)

927-541=386 (Sara)

941-235=706 (Joshua)

951-703=248 (Triton)

357-148=209 (Kayden)

918-273=645 (Ryland)

639-157=482 (Cameron)

603-125=478

729-543=186

576 – 194 = 382

896-654=242

625-278=347

910 – 342 = 568

532 – 345 = 187

678-234=444

please, I need help, with the same question, except you can only use the same numbers ONCE!

My third grader, Hayden, figured out 951-243=708

928-374=554

930-125=805
