Word Problems: Addition with Carrying (Up to 3 Digits)
Description: This packet helps students learn to read word problems and decide if they should use addition to solve the problems. Word problems give students practice recognizing key words that indicate addition (e.g., in total, in all, more, etc.). All problems use numbers up to 3 digits and students should be able to easily complete the math once they decide on the number sentence they should use.
Solve the word problems. Please show all of your work. Use labels in your answers.
Simple: If Jack makes 24 brownies, and Nick brings 47 brownies, how many brownies are there in all?
Advanced: Jack took 489 pictures on his camera, and Erin took 563 pictures, how many pictures did they take together?
Students should be able to read at grade level and know how to add numbers with carrying in order to complete these word problems independently.
