# Subtraction with Regrouping

We will learn subtraction 4-digit numbers with regrouping.

Subtraction of 4-digit numbers can be done in the same way as we do subtraction of smaller numbers. We first arrange the numbers one below the other in place value columns and then we start subtracting from the ones place and regroup, if required as shown in the following examples.

Solved Examples on Subtractionion with Regrouping:

1. Subtract 3958 from 7461.

Solution:

 Step I: Arrange the numbers vertically.Step II: Subtract the ones. Since 8 > 1, we cannot subtract 8 from 1. Regroup 6 tens and 1 one. Now, 6 tens + 1 one = 5 tens and 11 ones. 11 – 8 = 3 ones. Write 3 in ones column.Step III: Subtract the tens. 5 tens – 5 tens = 0 tens. Write 0 in tens column.Step IV: Subtract the hundreds. Since 9 > 4, we cannot subtract 9 from 4. Regroup 7 thousands and 4 hundreds as 6 thousands and 14 hundreds. 14 – 9 = 5 hundreds. Write 5 in hundreds column.Step V: Subtract the thousands. 6 – 3 = 3 thousands. Write 3 in thousands column. Thus, 7461 – 3958 = 3503.

2. Fill in the missing digits in the boxes:

We can find missing digits using addition and subtraction.

Solution:

 Steps I: Add the difference to the minuend to get the subtrahend. 3 + 6 = 9 Step II: Subtract the difference from subtrahend to get the minuend. 5 – 4 = 1
