Problem Solving Fractions Worksheets
Subtraction word problems very often use words such as 'difference,' 'less,' or 'decrease' in their wording.
Word problems for younger kids will also use verbs like 'gave' or 'shared' as a stand-in for subtraction.
These key words aren't a sure-fire way to know what to do with a problem, but they can be a useful starting point.
For example, phrases like 'combined,' 'total,' 'together' or 'sum' are very often signals that the problem is going to involve addition.
