520 + 0 = ___
Correct Answer
C. 520
Explanation
When you add zero to any number, the result is the original number. This is because zero has no value and does not change the value of the number it is added to.
In this case:
520 + 0 = 520
The number 520 remains the same because adding zero does not change its value. This principle is known as the identity property of addition.

What is seven hundreds plus thirteen tens?
Correct Answer
D. 830
Explanation
To find the sum of seven hundreds and thirteen tens, we need to convert these quantities into their respective values in standard numerical form.
Seven hundreds is 7 × 100 = 700.
Thirteen tens is 13 × 10 = 130.
Now, add these two values together:
700 + 130 = 830
So, seven hundreds plus thirteen tens is 830.

What number is missing in the pattern 57 51 45 39 ?
Correct Answer
A. 33
Explanation
The pattern in the given sequence is that each number is decreasing by 6 from the previous number. Starting from 57, we subtract 6 to get 51, then subtract 6 again to get 45, and so on. Therefore, the missing number should be 33, which is obtained by subtracting 6 from 39.

586 -369 = ______
Correct Answer
B. 217
Explanation
Write down the numbers: 586
369
Subtract the units place:
6 - 9: Since 6 is less than 9, we need to borrow from the tens place.
Borrowing 1 from the tens place changes the 8 to 7 and makes the 6 into 16.
16 - 9 = 7.
Subtract the tens place:
7 - 6 = 1 (since we borrowed 1 from the tens place).
Subtract the hundreds place:
5 - 3 = 2.
Therefore, 586 - 369 equals 217.
19.
Find the exact answer for '900 - 201'?
Correct Answer
A. 699
Explanation
Write down the numbers: 900
201
Subtract the units place:
0 - 1: Since 0 is less than 1, we need to borrow from the tens place.
Borrowing 1 from the tens place changes the tens place from 0 to 9 and makes the units place 10.
10 - 1 = 9.
Subtract the tens place:
9 - 0 = 9 (since we borrowed 1 from the hundreds place).
Subtract the hundreds place:
9 - 2 = 7 (since we borrowed 1 from the hundreds place).
Therefore, 900 - 201 equals 699.
20.
310 - 0 = __
Correct Answer
B. B) 310
Explanation
When you subtract zero from any number, the result is the original number. This is because subtracting zero does not change the value of the number.
In this case:
310 - 0 = 310
This operation is based on the identity property of subtraction, which states that any number minus zero is the number itself. So, subtracting zero from 310 leaves you with 310.
