00:00:00.800 --> 00:00:06.160
A shop has 953 bottles of drink.
00:00:06.960 --> 00:00:09.600
230 were sold.
00:00:10.080 --> 00:00:11.960
How many are left?
00:00:12.920 --> 00:00:18.800
When we solve word problems, we always start by highlighting the key numbers and phrases.
00:00:19.720 --> 00:00:24.760
A shop had 953 bottles of drink.
00:00:25.640 --> 00:00:28.520
230 are sold.
00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:32.040
We need to calculate how many bottles are left.
00:00:32.880 --> 00:00:41.320
Now we can write the equation; 953 bottles, 230 are sold.
00:00:42.120 --> 00:00:48.840
Next we need to figure out which operation to use, plus or minus.
00:00:49.440 --> 00:00:56.280
The shop had 953 bottles and then sold some.
00:00:56.800 --> 00:00:57.720
That’s correct!
00:00:58.000 --> 00:01:05.680
The operation we need to use is minus because 230 bottles were already sold.
00:01:06.560 --> 00:01:15.600
Once we’ve subtracted 230 bottles from the 953, that will tell us how many bottles are left.
00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:25.760
Now we can calculate the answer using column subtraction, 953 minus 230.
00:01:26.640 --> 00:01:32.640
Starting in the ones column, three minus zero is three.
00:01:33.080 --> 00:01:39.680
Moving across to the 10s column, five minus three is two.
00:01:40.240 --> 00:01:46.480
Finally, we’re moving to the 100s column: nine minus two is seven.
00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:55.440
953 minus 230 equals 723.
00:01:56.080 --> 00:02:01.320
The shop had 953 bottles of drink.
00:02:01.840 --> 00:02:09.240
They sold 230, which means that 723 were left.
00:02:09.640 --> 00:02:14.240
We calculated our answer using column subtraction.
