Step-by-Step Solution

**Identify the Operation:** The problem states that Emma “lost” 34 marbles, indicating we must *subtract* to find the remaining ones.

**Set Up the Equation:** Write the math problem as 76−34=?

**Subtract the Numbers:** Since these are two-digit numbers, you can solve this mentally or break it down for easier calculation. Let’s do it mentally:

- Start with the tens place: 7−3=4
- Move to the one’s place: 6−4=2

Put these together, and you get 42
