3 RESTATE Restate means to say something in a different way.
We restate the important information in the problem. That usually means writing the information that involves some kind of numbers.

4 RESTATE Restate also means to say the question in a different way to make sure you understand what to answer.

6 Restate Subtraction Questions
How many fewer? How much change? How many are left? The difference is… How many more? How much greater?
