# Subtraction Image - Numicon

With Numicon place the tiles one on top of the other so that the ‘difference’ is clearly visible...

...and then describe as...

“5 is one more than 4”

“4 is one less than 5”

“The difference between 4 and 5 is 1”

Model the number sentences:

4 + 1 = 5

5 — 1 = 4

5 — 4 = 1
