Subtracting Money


Subtracting money is pretty much the same thing as adding money, instead you have to solve subtraction word problems. So let's take the word problem:

Lucy has $20 that her mom gave her. She goes to the candy store to buy a sour pop lolly for $1.99. How much money did the store give her back?

The first thing we need to do is write down $20 she had in all in money form and then subtract that by $1.99 like this:

-  $  1.99
   $ 18.01
So the total money the store gave back to Lucy is $18.01.

Now practice this and make sure to watch the video on YouTube.
