 Mixed Operations for Grade 1 | Maths | Learning Concepts Operations on Numbers

# Mixed Operations for Class 1 Maths

The student will learn to use addition and Subtraction, both operations simultaneously in mixed operations for class 1 maths. Here the discussion is about addition and subtraction facts.

In this learning concept, the students will learn to

• subtraction facts
• fact family
• mixed word problems

Each concept is explained to class 1 maths students with illustrations and examples, and a concept map is given to summarize the idea. At the end of the page, two printable worksheets with solutions are attached for students to practice.

## Mixed Operations

• Addition: To find out the total
• Subtraction: To find out the difference When we add 0 to a number or subtract 0 from a number, we get the same number.

### Example :

3+0=3

3-0=3

• When we add 1 to a number, we get the number that comes after. When we subtract 1 from a number, we get a number that comes before that number.
• ### Example :

4+1=5

4-1=3  Adding 2 + 3 and 3 + 2 get the same answer as 5.

## Subtraction fact : Subtracting 2 from 5, we will get the answer 3, and subtracting 3 from 5 we will get the answer 2.

## Fact family : To find missing numbers in addition or subtraction, we can use fact families.

## Mixed Word Problems

We can solve a word problem involving addition or subtraction by following steps.

Step 1 : Find out which operation we need to do.

Step 2 : Identify the numbers with which we have to do the operation.

Step 3 : Find out the answer.

### Example :

Question 1: Joy has 2 books. Merry gives him 2 more books. How many books does Joy has now?

Solution:

Step 1: Here we need to find the total number of books. So, we need to do the addition.

Step 2: Joy has 2 books and he got 2 more books. So, we need to add 2 and 2.

Step 3: 2+2=4

Joy has 4 books in total.

Question 2 : Tom has 7 toy cars. Max has 3 toy cars. How many more cars does Tom has than Max? Solution:

Step 1: Here we need to find the difference. So, we need to do the Subtraction.

Step 2: The number 7 is the larger number here. So, we need to subtract 3 from 7.

Step 3: 7-3=4

Tom has 4 more cars than the Max.  • -
