Take from 10 Strategy

Subtract 1-digit from Whole Ten (eg. 60 - 8)

Subtract 1-digit from 2-digit (eg. 84 - 6)

Subtract 1-digit from 3-digit (eg. 213 - 8)

The “Take Out From 10” strategy for subtraction is another method that helps students subtract numbers by decomposing the number to be subtracted into 10 and the remaining part. This strategy is particularly helpful for early elementary students who are developing their subtraction skills.

Let’s look at some examples.

Example:

30 - 6

- Decompose 30 into 20 + 10
- 10 - 6 = 4
- 20 + 4 = 24

Example:

15 - 7

- Decompose 15 into 5 + 10
- 10 - 7 = 3
- 5 + 3 = 8

Example:

43 - 8

- Decompose 43 into 33 + 10
- 10 - 8 = 2
- 33 + 2 = 35

The “take out 10” strategy allows students to break down subtraction problems into more manageable parts, making the subtraction process more accessible. It reinforces the concept of decomposing numbers and builds a foundation for more advanced subtraction strategies.
