A farmer has 800 apples and sold
100. How many apples does the farmer
have left?

How many apples did the farmer
start with? Our question tells us that he had
800 apples in the beginning. The farmer sold 100 of his
apples. Does selling something mean you’ll
have more or less? When we sell things, we have less
than we started with. And that tells us that we need to
do subtraction.

We need to say 800 minus 100 equals
the number of apples the farmer has left. If we had eight hundreds and we
took one hundred away, we would be left with seven hundreds. Another way to write seven hundreds
is seven zero zero. If the farmer had 800 apples and
sold 100 of them, he would have 700 apples left.
