Addition & subtraction word problems

Word problem worksheets: Mixed addition and subtraction

Below are three versions of our grade 4 math worksheet with word problems involving addition and subtraction.  Tthere may be two or three addends or subtrahends with up to 4 digits in any given problem, though generally the computations are kept relatively simple.  Some problems will include irrelevant data so that students have to read and understand the questions, rather than simply recognizing a pattern to the solutions.  The last question on each worksheet asks the student to write an equation using a variable ("X") for the unknown quantity.
