      On Halloween, Freddy had 159 candies to give out. After the first two hours, he had already given out 73 candies. In the next two hours, he gave out 61 more candies. How many candies does Freddy have left at the end of the night?

      Topic Notes
      ?

      In this lesson, we will learn:

      • How to regroup base ten block models ("borrowing" or "exchanging")
      • How to subtract using base ten block models

      Notes:

      • Like addition, we will also need to regroup our base ten blocks for subtraction

      • When we don't have enough to subtract, we need to borrow from the next place value up to make more (splitting up the base ten block models)
        • Sometimes, this is called "exchanging"

        1 ten can be exchanged into 10 ones

        1 hundred can be exchanged into 10 tens

        1 thousand can be exchanged into 10 hundreds
