During the harvest, 13485 apples were picked. Week one, 4,589 apples were sold. Week two, 2,113 apples were sold. How many apples are left after two weeks?

Answer:

6,783 apples are left.

Explanation:

During the harvest, 13485 apples were picked.

Week one, 4,589 apples were sold.

Week two, 2,113 apples were sold.

Total apples sold in two weeks 4,589 + 2,113 = 6,702

Number of apples left after two weeks

13,485 – 6,702 = 6,783

**Example 1**

STEP 1 Find how many apples were left after week 1.

Answer:

8,896 apples.

Explanation:

During the harvest, 13485 apples were picked.

Week one, 4,589 apples were sold.

Number of apples left

13,485 – 4,589 = 8,896

STEP 2 Find how many apples were left after week 2.

So, the Yummy Apple Orchard had ___________ apples left after two weeks.

Answer: 6,783

Explanation:

Apples sold during week two = 2,113

Apples left after week one = 8,896
