**Subtraction of four digit number without borrowing**

**Question 1**

**Subtract the following:**

**Explanation**

**Subtracting the digits at ones place
**

**2 – 1 = 1**

**Subtracting the digits at tens place
**

**6 – 5 = 1**

**Subtracting the digits at hundreds place
**

**4 – 4 = 0**

**Subtracting the digits at thousands place
**

**7 – 3 = 4**

**Hence, the difference is 4011**

**Question 2**

**Explanation**

**Subtracting the digits at ones place
**

**6 – 4 = 2**

**Subtracting the digits at tens place
**

**7 – 3 = 4**

**Subtracting the digits at hundreds place
**

**2 – 0 = 2**

**Subtracting the digits at thousands place

**Subtraction of four digit number with borrowing**

**Question 1**

**Subtract the following:**

**Explanation**

**If we want to Subtract the digits at ones place, we have
**

**3 – 5**

**But 5 is greater than 3**

**We would need to borrow 1 from 5 in tens place**

**3 in ones place would now become 13 and 5 in tens place would be reduced to 4**

**So, 13 – 5 = 8**

**Subtracting the digits at tens place
**

**4 – 4 = 0**

**Subtracting the digits at hundreds place
**

**5 – 2 = 3**

**Subtracting the digits at thousands place
**

**7 – 3 = 4**

**Hence, the difference is 4308**

**Question 2**

**Subtract the following:**

**Explanation **

**If we want to Subtract the digits at ones place, we have
**

**5 – 6**

**But 6 is greater than 5**

**We would need to borrow 1 from 3 in tens place**

**5 in ones place would now become 15 and 3 in tens place would be reduced to 2**

**So, 15 – 6 = 9**

** **

**If we want to Subtract the digits at tens place, we have
**

**2 – 7**

**But 7 is greater than 2**

**We would need to borrow 1 from 5 in hundred place**

**2 in tens place would now become 12 and 5 in hundred place would be reduced to 4**

**So, 12 – 7 = 5**

**If we want to Subtract the digits at hundred place, we have
**

**4 – 8**

**But 8 is greater than 4**

**We would need to borrow 1 from 8 in thousand place**

**4 in hundred place would now become 14 and 8 in thousand place would be reduced to 7**

**So, 14 – 8 = 6**

** **

**Subtracting the digits at thousands place
**

**7 – 2 = 5**

**Hence, the difference is 5659**
