In this quiz you are going to get some practice in adding and subtracting hundreds.TIP: With numbers less than 1,000, add the hundreds first, then the tens and then the units. For example:

• 120 + 360 + 22 + 8 = (100 + 300) + (20 + 60 + 20) + (2 + 8) = 400 + 100 + 10 = 510
In each of the following questions, what is the answer to the given problem?
1.
345 + 450 - 200 = ?
597
598
596
595
345 + 450 - 200 = (300 + 400 - 200) + (40 + 50) + (5) = 500 + 90 + 5 = 595
2.
245 + 309 - 68 = ?
486
485
487
488
245 + 309 - 68 = (200 + 300) + (40 - 60) + (5 + 9 - 8) = 500 - 20 + 6 = 486
3.
234 - 68 + 2 + 13 = ?
180
182
181
183
234 - 68 + 2 + 13 = (200) + (30 - 60 + 10) + (4 + 2 + 3 - 8) = 200 - 20 + 1 = 181
4.
500 + 200 + 400 - 678 = ?
420
421
422
423
500 + 200 + 400 - 678 = (500 + 200 + 400 - 600) - (70) - (8) = 500 - 78 = 422. You can repeat the procedure if you are having difficulty in doing it in your head. Note: with negative numbers, the negative sign is kept with each part of the number, e.g. - 678 is written as -600, -70, -8
5.
238 - 78 - 45 + 167 = ?
228
282
283
284
238 - 78 - 45 + 167 = (200 + 100) + (30 - 70 - 40 + 60) + (8 - 8 - 5 + 7) = 300 - 20 + 2 = 282
6.
400 + 323 - 23 = ?
703
697
700
723
400 + 323 - 23 = (400 + 300) + (20 - 20) + (3 - 3) = 700. Be on the LOOKOUT FOR SHORT CUTS: 323 - 23 = 300
7.
789 + 567 - 968 = ?
388
389
390
387
789 + 567 - 968 = (700 + 500 - 900) + (80 + 60 - 60) + (9 + 7 - 8) = 300 + 80 + 8 = 388
8.
400 - 389 - 400 + 567 = ?
177
178
180
176
400 - 389 - 400 + 567 = (500 - 300) + (60 - 80) + (7 - 9) = 200 - 20 - 2 = 178
9.
123 + 56 + 684 - 3 = ?
870
880
860
890
TIP: With numbers less than 1,000, add the hundreds first, then the tens and then the units. 123 + 56 + 684 - 3 = (100 + 600) + (20 + 50 + 80) + (3 + 6 + 4 - 3) = 700 + 150 + 10 = 860. You can repeat the procedure if you are having difficulty in doing it in your head
10.
234 - 450 + 389 = ?
