Read it carefully and identify the important information. It might help to imagine it as a story, or draw the problem as a quick doodle.
In time for the 2015 Sports Tournament, I want to make flags to support the United Kingdom. Mum got 45m of blue material, 34m of red material and 53m of white material.
After all the measuring, cutting and sewing, we used 34m of blue, only 15m of red and 49m of white.
Altogether, how much fabric do we have left over?
