We make make subtracting fun with our growing collection of free printable subtraction games!

Subtraction Triangles

How They Work: Notice that the triangle is turned upside down.  The triangle at the top has empty squares that need to be filled in with numbers.  

The bottom triangle has been filled in with the correct numbers and is complete.  

Starting with the top row of numbers, notice that the difference of two numbers touching each other is directly below the two numbers.

For example, the two numbers in the top row on the left are 7 and 1.  When you subtract 1 from 7, the difference is 6.  And 6 is the number that is directly below the 7 and the 1.  The whole subtraction triangle works this same way!

Got it!  Here we Go! 

  • Fill in the empty boxes with the correct numbers to complete each subtraction triangle.
