maths mate term 3 sheet 3 question 23

Predict: I predict that this will be about problem solving.

Read:  Fill in the missing digits to the sum.

Clarify: there was nothing to clarify.

Strategies: In every line there was one unknown, therefore I used the two known numbers to work the unknown numbers. e.g  X – 7 = 3. I know that 10 -7= 3 therefore the missing number was zero.

Summary: Overall this question was actually quite hard for a fill in the missing digits question. Because I usually get these ones right on the spot, maybe it is because it is not an addition one.  I usually struggle with my subtraction.

Answer: 0 at the top middle, 1 in the bottom right and 3 in the middle left.
