In this post we will understand subtraction of numbers with 3. First we will understand the concept with the help of number line then we will move on to the worksheets where we will solve the problems related to this concept. All the problems in the worksheet are fully explained for the benefit of the students so that they can refer to the explanation in case of any doubt.

All the material created in the website is as per USA and Canada Math curriculum. Though Math whose content is universal can be accessed by anyone living across any part of the earth.

**Subtraction with 3 : Concept Explanation**

When we subtract any number with 3, we have to make three jumps towards the left in the number line to get the final number.

Let us understand this with example

Example 1**7 – 3 = ?**

Here we have to subtract number 7 with 3.

Follow the below step to get the right answer

Step 1: Start with number 7 on number line

Step 2: Make three jumps towards left

Step 3: Stop at number 4

The above steps are explained in below number line image:

hence **7 – 3 = 4 **is the right answer

**Example 02**

5 – 3 = ?

Solution

Here we have to subtract number 5 with 3.

Follow the below step to get the right answer

Step 1: Start with number 5 on number line

Step 2: Make three jumps towards left

Step 3: Stop at number 2

The above steps are explained in below number line image:

hence **5 – 3 = 2 **is the right answer

**Example 03**

11 – 3 = ?

Solution

Here we have to subtract number 11 with 3.

Follow the below step to get the right answer

Step 1: Start with number 11 on number line

Step 2: Make three jumps towards left

Step 3: Stop at number 8

The above steps are explained in below number line image:

hence **11 – 3 = 8 **is the right answer

Now we have understood how subtraction with 3 works, let us now look at the following table which shows subtraction of number 3 with numbers 3 to 20

**Conclusion **:** On subtracting number with 3, we have to jump three times to the left on number line**
