1GJ have a Christmas Maths area. One of the activities is to write Christmas problems. Sophie has been very busy and written lots of problems. Can you answer any of them?

If there are 9 reindeers and 2 run away, how many reindeers will be left?

If there are 10 snowmen and 5 melt, how many snowmen will be left?

There are 6 baubles on a tree. 4 fall off. How many are left?

There are 30 presents under the tree. If I open 1, how many are there left?
