If there were 61 eggs on a shelf and then 31 of them fell down, how many eggs are left?
00:00:12.470 --> 00:00:14.640
We’re starting with 61 eggs.
00:00:16.060 --> 00:00:18.140
31 of them fall down.
00:00:20.180 --> 00:00:23.150
And we wanna know how many are remaining.
00:00:24.980 --> 00:00:28.180
This word problem is telling us we have some.
00:00:29.020 --> 00:00:32.310
Then some left or we had some less.
00:00:32.850 --> 00:00:35.170
And we wanna know about the remaining.
00:00:36.060 --> 00:00:38.470
This is a subtraction problem.
00:00:40.160 --> 00:00:45.820
We need to subtract the number of eggs that fell from the number of eggs we started with.
00:00:47.710 --> 00:00:49.580
We started with 61.
00:00:51.180 --> 00:00:52.610
31 of them fell.
00:00:53.930 --> 00:00:55.390
And we want to subtract.
00:00:56.910 --> 00:01:05.370
After we line them up vertically with their place values in order, we start with the ones place.
00:01:05.840 --> 00:01:10.960
And we need to subtract one minus one equals zero.
00:01:12.470 --> 00:01:14.800
Then we can move on to the tens place.
00:01:15.090 --> 00:01:18.340
And here we will subtract three from six.
00:01:18.610 --> 00:01:22.280
Six minus three is three.
00:01:23.890 --> 00:01:27.240
61 minus 31 equals 30.
00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:30.870
30 eggs remain.
