# Number Line Subtraction Worksheets

• ###### Double Digit Number Line

You’re probably already familiar with a number line – it’s just a straight line with numbers placed at equal distances from each other. For instance, a simple number line might start at 0 on the left and then have 1, 2, 3, and so on to the right.

Now, when it comes to subtraction, you can use a number line to visually represent the process. Here’s how:

Let’s say you have the problem 5 – 3. You would start at the number 5 on the number line. Because you’re subtracting, you would move to the left (since the numbers get smaller in that direction). You’d move three places to the left because you’re subtracting 3. You’d end up at the number 2, and so, 5 – 3 equals 2.

This collection of worksheets contains a series of these subtraction problems that can be solved visually with the help of a number line. They may provide a number line for each problem, or they might provide one number line to use with all the problems. The worksheets will ask you to solve the problems using the number line, which helps you to see and understand the process of subtraction.

This visual method of learning subtraction is especially helpful if you’re a visual learner or if you’re having trouble understanding subtraction using only numbers. It’s also a great way to confirm your answers when you’re doing subtraction in your head or on paper.
