### Answer

There are many possible answers. E.g. 432 – 199 = 233.

If digits can be repeated, there are 1225 possible ways.

If digits CANNOT be repeated, there are 700 possible ways.

This helps a lot!

YES and it be 400-199 = 201 >:b

Nice!

I like this question!

I also found an answer. It is 408-162=246.

1. 430 – 196 = 234

2. A. 431 – 199 = 232

B. 430 – 191 = 239

C. 428 – 198 = 230

D. 425 – 197 = 228

E. 427 – 193 = 234

3. I got 1225 possible ways as my answer.

4. I got 749 ways to not use repeated digits as my answer.

I found differrent ways Mukul!

1)400-199=201

2)401-198=203

3)400-197=203

4)400-196=204

I am surprised at how many solutions there are to the problem!1225 when you can repeat the numbers and 749 when you can’t repeat the numbers.

It can also be any rounded number rounded to 200 or less. 0-249 are good numbers to solve. The hint helps.

With using 0-9 only once my student and I got 401-198= 203.

but you used the digit 1 twice.

A.459-243=216

B.465-244=221

441-196=245

415-177=238

436-188=248

428-189=239

418-169=249

400-199=201

400 – 175 = 225

432-199=233

642-431=211

400 and 199

Love math ❤️❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘💕💕💕💕🎶🎶😉

The answer is E. G. 432-199=233

401-199=202

400-190=210

It is 401-199=202 it think

400-163=237

really helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, it is 432-199=233

this is hard

210 is closer is to 200

no! I would say 201 is closer

what do we do

400-199 is the closesd solution to 200

There are many possible answers. E.g. 432 – 199 = 233.

If digits can be repeated, there are 1225 possible ways.

If digits CANNOT be repeated, there are 700 possible ways.

400-199=201

I like that there are so many possible answers. I went with the lowest number I could make with the 4 and the highest number I could make with the 1 .

400-199=201

412-182 = 230

Regrouping in the tens place

thank you very much it helped a lot🎇😁😁😁
