# Subtraction of 3-Digit Numbers with Regrouping

Subtraction of 3-digit numbers with regrouping  are explained here with examples.

As you borrow from the tens column, you can borrow from the hundreds column also.

REmember:

1 ten = 10 ones

1 hundred = 10 tens

Solved Examples on Subtraction of 3-Digit Numbers with Regrouping:

 1. Subtract 674 – 458Step I: Arrange the numbers vertically.Step II: Subtract the ones column. Since, 8 > 4 and we cannot subtract 8 from 4. So, we regroup 7 tens and 4 ones. Now, 7 tens + 4 ones = 6 tens and 14 ones. 14 – 8 = 6 onesStep III: Subtract the tens column. 6 – 5 = 1 tensStep IV: Subtract the hundreds column. 6 – 4 = 2 hundreds. Thus, 674 – 458 = 216

2. Subtract 747 – 489.

 Step I: Arrange the numbers vertically.Step II: Subtract the ones column. Since, 9 > 7 and we cannot subtract 9 from 7. So, we regroup 4 tens and 7ones. Now, 4 tens + 7 ones = 3 tens and 17 ones. 17 – 9 = 8 onesStep III: Subtract the tens column. Since, 1 ten is regrouped by ones column, so we are left with 4 – 1 = 3 tens. We cannot subtract 8 from 3. So, we regroup 7 hundreds and 3 tens. Now, 7 hundreds + 3 tens = 6 hundreds and 13 tens.  13 – 8 = 5 tens Step IV: Subtract the hundreds column. 6 – 4 = 2 hundreds. Thus, 747 - 489 = 258
