Worksheet: Subtracting Ones from Teen Numbers: Subtracting From Ten

In this worksheet, we will practice subtracting a one-digit number from a teen number by subtracting from ten.

Q1:

Which addition expression is equal to 1 4 9 ?

  • A 1 4 + 9
  • B 1 + 4
  • C 9 + 5
  • D 1 4
  • E 9 1 4

Q2:

Think about taking away 9 from different numbers.

For example, the pictures show that 10 take away 9 is 1 and 11 take away 9 is 1 + 1 .

Look at these number sentences. Which one is WRONG?

  • A 1 7 9 = 1 + 7
  • B 1 5 9 = 1 + 5
  • C 1 9 9 = 1 + 1 0

Q3:

Let us try to find 13 take away 9.

We can draw 13 dots as one group of 10 dots and one group of 3 dots.

Now take away 9 from the group of ten dots.

We are left with 1 + 3 dots which is 4 dots.

So 1 3 9 = 4 .

Now you have a go. What is 1 2 9 ?

Q4:

Ethan is baking cupcakes. He has 10 cupcakes cooling on the table, and 7 cupcakes in the oven. He puts icing on 9 of the cupcakes on the table. If all the cupcakes need to be iced by the end of the day, how many more cupcakes does he need to ice?
