2-Digit Numbers Subtraction using Short Form

Here we will learn 2-digit numbers subtraction using short form.


Let's try to solve the following example:

Subtraction of 2-Digit Numbers with Regrouping using Short Form.

1. Subtract 49 from 75.

In the given numbers, 75 is greater than 49. So, we write 49 below 75 as shown on the right.

Now we take the following steps.

Subtraction using Short Form

Step I: Subtract the ones:

We cannot subtract 9 ones from 5 ones. So, we borrow 1 ten, from 7 tens leaving behind 6 tens.

Now, we have 1 ten + 5 ones = 15 ones.

15 ones - 9 ones = 6 ones.

Write 6 under ones column.


Step II: Subtract the tens:

6 tens - 4 tens = 2 tens.

Write 2 under tens column.

Therefore, 75 - 49 = 26.

2. Subtract 28 from 47.

In the given numbers, 47 is greater than 28. So, we write 28 below 47 as shown on the right.

Now we take the following steps.

Subtraction 2-Digit Numbers using Short Form

Step I: Subtract the ones:

We cannot subtract 8 ones from 7 ones. So, we borrow 1 ten, from 4 tens leaving behind 3 tens.

Now, we have 1 ten + 7 ones = 17 ones.

17 ones - 8 ones = 9 ones.

Write 9 under ones column.


Step II: Subtract the tens:

3 tens - 2 tens = 1 ten.

Write 1 under tens column.

Therefore, 47 - 28 = 19


3. Subtract 39 from 90.

In the given numbers, 90 is greater than 39. So, we write 39 below 90 as shown on the right.

Now we take the following steps.

2-Digit Subtraction using Shot Form

Step I: Subtract the ones:

We cannot subtract 9 ones from 0 ones. So, we borrow 1 ten, from 9 tens leaving behind 8 tens.

Now, we have 1 ten + 0 ones = 10 ones.

10 ones - 9 ones = 1 one.

Write 1 under ones column.


Step II: Subtract the tens:

8 tens - 3 tens = 5 tens.

Write 5 under tens column.

2-Digit Two Digit Subtraction using Shot Form

Therefore, 90 - 39 = 51.
