MA.2.M.1.3

Solve one- and two-step real-world measurement problems involving addition and subtraction of lengths given in the same units.

Examples

Jeff and Larry are making a rope swing. Jeff has a rope that is 48 inches long. Larry’s rope is 9 inches shorter than Jeff’s. How much rope do they have together to make the rope swing?
