There are seven books and five pens. We can subtract to find how many more books there are. There are two more books. Seven subtract five equals two. There are six buckets and two spades. Subtract to find the difference. Six take away two equals what? There are four fewer buckets than spades or four more buckets than spades.

We know there are six buckets and two spades. There are more buckets than spades. Let’s count on from two to six to find the difference. One, two, three, four. The difference between two and six is four. So six take away two equals four. We subtracted to find the difference.

The second part of the question asks us if there are four fewer buckets than spades or four more buckets than spades. There are more buckets than spades, so the answer is “four more.”

There are six buckets and two spades. We counted on to find the difference. We started at two because there are two spades and we counted on until we reached six because there are six buckets. The difference between two and six is four. Six take away two equals four. There are four more buckets than spades.
