Word Problems: Extra Facts Subtraction Word Problems

Word problem worksheets for subtraction with extra unused facts in each problem. The worksheets start out with subtraction problems with smaller values and progress through more difficult problems.

These slightly more advanced subtraction word problems build on the skills learned in the basic subtraction worksheets introduced earlier by adding additional facts to the problem description.

Students will need to figure out which facts are necessary to solve the question being asked, and know when they can discard a specific fact given in the problem description. This prevents students from simply determining what operation is needed to solve a problem given based on a keyword showing up because some of the information isn't important to finding the correct answer.
