Numbers

A suffix is found at the end of a word.  Some suffixes are: -er, -est,
-ed, -less, -ness, -or, -ly, -y, -able, -ful, and -ing.

The words faster and batter use the suffix -er.  If you add -er to the word fast you get faster.  If you add -er to the word bat you get batter.  Notice the letter "t" is written twice in batter.  The "t" is not part of the suffix.

Find the suffix in each word below.
