Subtraction Worksheets for Grade 4 Explanation

Q.1) Explanation – Subtraction Worksheets for Grade 4

Subtracting the digits at ones place
3 – 1 = 2

Subtracting the digits at tens place

4 – 3 = 1

Subtracting the digits at hundreds place

5 – 2 = 3

Subtracting the digits at thousands place

8 – 4 = 4

Hence, the difference is 4312

Correct Answer – b) ​4312

Q.2) Explanation – Subtraction Worksheets for Grade 4

Subtracting the digits at ones place

3 – 2 = 1

Subtracting the digits at tens place

5 – 2 = 3

Subtracting the digits at hundreds place

4 – 3 = 1


Subtracting the digits at thousands place

4 – 2 = 2

Subtracting the digits at ten thousands place

4 – 3 = 1

Hence, the difference is 12131

Correct Answer – a) 12131​




Q.3) Explanation – Subtraction Worksheets for Grade 4

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

3 – 6

But 6 is greater than 3

We would need to borrow 1 from 2 in tens place

3 in ones place would now become 13 and 2 in tens place would be reduced to 1

So, 13 – 6 = 7

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

1 – 8

But 8 is greater than 1

We would need to borrow 1 from 6 in hundred place

1 in tens place would now become 11 and 6 in hundred place would be reduced to 5

So, 11 – 8 = 3

Subtracting the digits at hundreds place

5 – 3 = 2

Subtracting the digits at thousands place

7 – 2 = 5

Hence, the difference is 5237

Correct Answer – c) ​5237




Q.4) Explanation – Subtraction Worksheets for Grade 4

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

7 – 9

But 9 is greater than 7

We would need to borrow 1 from 5 in tens place

7 in ones place would now become 17 and 5 in tens place would be reduced to 4

So, 17 – 9 = 8

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

4 – 8

But 8 is greater than 4

We would need to borrow 1 from 2 in hundred place

4 in tens place would now become 14 and 2 in hundred place would be reduced to 1

So, 14 – 8 = 6

Subtracting the digits at hundreds place

1 – 1 = 0

Subtracting the digits at thousands place

5 – 5 = 0

Subtracting the digits at ten thousands place

3 – 1 = 2

Hence, the difference is 20068

Correct Answer – b) ​20068
