Solved Examples

Question 1: Find the missing addend.

(1) 75 +  ____  = 100

(2) ____  + 800 + 50 = 906

Solution:
Let missing addend be x

(1) 75 + x = 100

=> x = 100 - 75

=> x = 25

=> 75 + 25 = 100 (Which is true)

(2) x + 800 + 50 = 906

=> x + 850 = 906

=> x = 906 - 850

=> x = 56

=> 56 + 800 + 50 = 906 (Which is true)
