ANSWER as many SUBTRACTION QUESTIONS as you can (as quickly as you can) to help your racer win the race. You simply need to decide which number the ‘?’ is hiding, to complete the sum correctly. For example, in the question ? - 2 = 10, the missing number is 12, in ? - 10 = 60, the missing number is 70, and in 220 - 110 = ?, the missing number is 110. Try to answer the questions as quickly as you can with the numbers at the bottom of the screen to help your racer win the race.

The quicker you answer, the faster your racer will move. Answer 4 questions in a row correctly, and you’ll get an extra POWER BOOST. The winner is the first racer to cross the finish line.


You can test yourself on OVER 1000 subtraction QUESTIONS: Here are the different levels: -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -7, -8, -9, -10 -11 and HALVES.

FAST FAIRIES: Which fairy will race for you? Pearl Petal, Rosy Red Socks, Spring Sparkle or Lucky Star?
HOT CARS: Will you be Blue Blazer, Golden Glow, Red Rocket or Pink Power?
FAIRY TALE DASH: Choose from Little Red Riding Hood (My what a fast car she has!), Pinocchio (Will he win by a nose?), Goldilocks (Will it be 'Just right!' for her?) or The Gingerbread Man (Crumbs! He's fast!)

TWO LEVELS to play:

Easy = It’s a bit slower and perfect for younger players
Hard = Great for players who are better at Maths/Subtraction. Much faster too!

HELP is just a tap away!

We don’t want our players to get stuck while they play, so we’ve provided FULL QUESTION & ANSWER SUPPORT for each question.

CHECK your ANSWERS after you race too!

You can check all your answers at the end and check any mistakes you may have made. Great for EXTRA SUBTRACTION PRACTICE.
