1. 12 + 6 - 2 = ?
[x] 16
[ ] 15
[ ] 14
[ ] 17
TIP: With numbers less than 100, add the tens first and then add the units. 12 + 6 - 2 = (10) + (2 + 6 - 2) = 10 + 6 = 16
2. 23 + 6 - 4 = ?
[ ] 24
[ ] 23
[ ] 26
[x] 25
23 + 6 - 4 = (20) + (3 + 6 - 4) = 20 + 5 = 25
3. 10 + 23 + 5 - 1 = ?
[ ] 36
[ ] 35
[x] 37
[ ] 38
10 + 23 + 5 - 1 = (10 + 20) + (3 + 5 - 1) = 30 + 7 = 37
4. 17 - 8 = ?
[ ] 7
[ ] 8
[x] 9
[ ] 6
17 - 8 = (10) + (7 - 8) = 10 - 1 = 9
5. 46 - 20 + 12 = ?
[x] 38
[ ] 37
[ ] 36
[ ] 35
46 - 20 + 12 = (40 + 10 - 20) + (6 + 2) = 30 + 8 = 38
6. 12 + 12 + 12 = ?
[ ] 35
[ ] 34
[x] 36
[ ] 32
12 + 12 + 12 = (10 + 10 + 10) + (2 + 2 + 2) = 30 + 6 = 36. Obviously, if you know that 12 × 3 = 36, you won't follow this procedure. Always BE ON THE LOOKOUT for short cuts
7. 34 + 15 + 6 - 1 = ?
[ ] 44
[ ] 55
[x] 54
[ ] 56
34 + 15 + 6 - 1 = (30 + 10) + (4 + 5 + 6 - 1) = 40 + 14 = 54
8. 2 + 4 + 6 + 7 + 1 = ?
[x] 20
[ ] 19
[ ] 18
[ ] 21
2 + 4 + 6 + 7 + 1 = (4 + 6) + (7 + 2 + 1) = 20. Try to group your numbers in lots of ten
9. 0 + 2 + 12 + 0 = ?
[ ] 24
[x] 14
[ ] 10
[ ] 16
0 + 2 + 12 + 0 = (10) + (2 + 2) = 10 + 4 = 14. You could do this sum just by looking at it
10. 8 + 14 - 8 + 6 = ?
[ ] 14
[ ] 16
[ ] 18
[x] 20
8 + 14 - 8 + 6 = (14 + 6) = 20. Cross out identical pairs of numbers that differ only in sign, e.g. +8 - 8 = 0. Don't waste your time adding them to your final calculations
