# The Perfect Method To Solve "More than" & "Less than" Questions

My daughter is in Pri 2 this year. Teaching her how to solve “more than, less than” Maths problem sums is nothing but nerve-wracking. I have tried at least 3 different methods (including her school teacher’s), but half of the time she would get the answer wrong.

Her frustration of tackling comparison sums continued until I found the perfect method in teach-kids-math-by-model-method.com during the 3rd quarter of the year. I never knew that there were actually 12 different variations for comparison questions, and that all could be solved easily by using just one simple method! The most amazing thing was, after showing her in less than a minute how the method could be used to solve 1 question, she could painlessly apply it on her own to the rest of the 9 variations and get all the answers correct!

I just wish I had consulted this website much earlier.

 Feb 02, 2018 Rating Question is not set correctly by: Zach Your question is flawed. It is set wrongly. 34 can never be less than 17. So to ask what number less than 17 is 34 is like asking for the impossible. Maybe the question should read as "17 is _________ less than 34"??
