in a basketball game the giraffes scored 13 fewer points than the Penguins the Penguins scored the Penguins scored 87 points how many points did the giraffes score now before we even try to do this let's just think that based on what they told us well the giraffes score more points than the Penguins or less points than the Penguins well they tell us the giraffes scored 13 fewer points 13 fewer fewer points than the Penguins so the giraffes scored less points than the Penguins so whatever number is here the giraffes this is going to be less than 87 because the penguin scored 87 points and how much less is it well it's going to be 13 less it's going to be 13 fewer so this right over here this right over here is whatever the penguin scored whatever the penguin scored which they tell us is 87 can they tell us the penguin scored 87 points and it's going to be 13 fewer than that or 13 less than that so it's going to be 87 minus 13 points so let's figure out what that is so the Penguins scored 87 points and the giraffes scored 13 fewer so if we subtract 13 from the 87 that's going to give us the number of points that the giraffes scored so what is that going to be let's see let's look at the ones place 7 ones minus 3 ones is 4 ones and I go to the tens place eight tens minus one 10 is 7 tens so 13 fewer than 87 is 74 points and the giraffes score 13 fewer than the Penguins this is the Penguins this is what the penguin scored right over here the giraffe scored 13 fewer than that so that is going to be that is going to be 74 74 points and it makes sense 74 is 13 fewer than 87
