How to add or subtract using written methods

To find the sum of two numbers you simply add them together using either a number line, bus stop method, chunking or the column method. Note that you can add the numbers together in any order and the answer will always be the same.

 

To find the difference between two numbers you must subtract the second number in the calculation from the first number using either a number line, bus stop method, chunking or the column method. Note that if you subtract the first number from the second number, you will get the wrong answer.
