**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The number of unplanted plants, if Eileen Townsend planted

Explanation

**Given information:**

The number of plants bought by Eileen Townsend is

**Formula used:**

Steps for subtracting a whole number,

Step 1: Line up the place values by writing the whole numbers in columns - units, tens, hundreds, thousands, and so on.

Step 2: Starting from the right with the units column, subtract the digits in each column.

Step 3: A digit must be borrowed from the column to the left of the working column, if the column cannot be subtracted.

**Calculation:**

To calculate the number of plants left unplanted just subtract the number of plants planted from the total number of plants.

Subtract

Check the units column,

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The number of more plants needed to fill the flower bed if the remaining flower beds have room for

**(c)**

To determine
