203 students, and the filmmaking club has 467. How many students are in the computer club? Order the
steps you would take to solve the problem.
A.  203 + 467 = 670  B.  1476  670 = 806  C.  I figure out I need to add the number of students in the chess
club to the number of students in the filmmaking club. Then I need to subtract that total from the
number of students in all clubs.  D.  I understand I have to find out how many students are in the
computer club. I know how many students are in the other 2 clubs and how many students are in all the
clubs combined.

I need to subtract that year from 2004.  B.  2004  1876 = 128  C.  I understand I need to find out how many years ago Alexander
Graham Bell invented the telephone. I know that he started his work in 1872 and the first telephone
