Subtracting money amounts is a way to find out how much money you have left after spending some of it. It’s like taking away the cost of things you buy from the total amount of money you have.

Let’s say you have $10 and you want to buy a toy that costs $4. To find out how much money you will have left after buying the toy, you subtract the cost of the toy from the total amount of money. So, $10 – $4 = $6.

**In this worksheet, you will be given different amounts of money and you need to subtract the cost of something from that amount.** You can do this by writing down the total amount of money you have and then subtracting the cost. Remember to line up the decimal points when you subtract, just like in regular subtraction.

For example, if you have $15 and you want to buy a book that costs $7, you would write down $15 and subtract $7. The answer would be $8.

Subtracting money amounts helps you understand how much money you have left after spending, and it’s a useful skill for managing your finances.
