2-Digit Missing Subtrahend Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a collection of subtraction problems presented in a vertical format, commonly known as column subtraction. Each problem consists of two numbers, one on top of the other, with the larger number above and the smaller number below. A horizontal line separates them, indicating where the subtraction result should be written. The worksheet contains 40 individual subtraction exercises, organized in two columns, to provide ample practice for students.

The purpose of this worksheet is to help students practice and master the skill of column subtraction, which is a fundamental arithmetic operation. By presenting problems in a vertical format, it encourages students to subtract each digit starting from the rightmost side, borrowing from the next left digit when necessary. This exercise aims to reinforce students’ understanding of place value and the borrowing concept in multi-digit subtraction. It is designed to build fluency and confidence in performing subtraction without the use of calculators or other aids.
