Lesson Worksheet: Subtraction without Renaming Mathematics

In this worksheet, we will practice subtracting either a one-digit number or a two-digit number from a two-digit number without using the fact that one ten equals ten ones.




In a garden, there were 23 children playing; 11 of them were girls. How many boys were there?


Which of these equals 7921?

  • A6911
  • B7969
  • C7911
  • D6921


Take away 32 from 43.

Hint: How many tens and ones do you need to take away?


Use <, >, or = to fill in the gap: 696448.

  • A>
  • B<
  • C=


We can think about place value to help us subtract.
