# Subtraction without Regrouping

We will learn subtracting 4-digit, 5-digit and 6-digit numbers without regrouping.

We learnt about subtraction of numbers up to 3-digits.

In a subtraction problem, the larger number from which we subtract the other number (the smaller number) is called minuend, the number (the smaller number) which is subtracted is called subtrahend and the result of subtraction is called the difference.

Here, we shall learn subtraction of 4-digit numbers.

Let us have a quick review of what we have learnt about subtraction.

We first arrange the numbers one below the other in place value columns and then subtract the digits under each column as shown in the following examples.

Solved Examples on Subtraction of 4-Digit Numbers without Regrouping:

1. Subtract 3248 from 6589.

Solution:

 Step I: Arrange the numbers vertically.Step II: Subtract ones. 9 – 8 = 1 one. Write 1 in ones column.Step III: Subtract the tens. 8 – 4 = 4 tens.. Write 4 in tens column.Step IV: Subtract the hundreds. 5 – 2 = 3 hundreds. Write 3 in hundreds column.Step V: Subtract the thousands. 6 – 3 = 3 thousands. Write 3 in thousands column. Thus, 6589 – 3248 = 3341.

2. Subtract 3711 from 9911.

Solution:

 Step I: Arrange the numbers vertically.Step II: Subtract ones. 1 – 1 = 0 one. Write 0 in ones column.Step III: Subtract the tens. 1 – 1 = 0 tens.. Write 0 in tens column.Step IV: Subtract the hundreds. 9 – 7 = 2 hundreds. Write 2 in hundreds column.Step V: Subtract the thousands. 9 – 3 = 6 thousands. Write 6 in thousands column. Thus, 9911 – 3711 = 6200.

3. Subtract 3022 from 9547.

Solution:

Step I: Arrange the numbers in columns.

 Th H T O 9 5 4 7 - 3 0 2 2

Step II: Subtracting ones, we have

 Th H T O 9 5 4 7 - 3 0 2 2

 5

Step III: Subtracting tens, we have

 Th H T O 9 5 4 7 - 3 0 2 2

 2 5

Step IV: Subtracting hundreds, we have

 Th H T O 9 5 4 7 - 3 0 2 2

 5 2 5

Step V: Subtracting thousands, we have

 Th H T O 9 5 4 7 - 3 0 2 2

 6 5 2 5

Hence, 9,547 - 3,022 = 6,525

(Six thousand, five hundred twenty-five)

Solved Examples on Subtraction of 5-Digit Numbers without Regrouping:

1. Subtract 54231 from 86954.

Solution:

 Step I: Subtract ones. 4 – 1 = 3. Write 3 under ones.Step II: Subtract tens. 5 – 3 = 2. Write 2 under tens.Step III: Subtract hundreds. 9 – 2 = 7. Write 7 under hundreds.Step IV: Subtract thousands. 6 – 4 = 2. Write 2 under thousands.Step V: Subtract ten thousands. 8 – 5 = 3. Write 3 under ten thousands.Therefore, the difference is 32723

Solved Examples on Subtraction of 6-Digit Numbers without Regrouping:

1. Subtract 134108 from 275638

Solution:

 Step I: Subtract ones. 8 – 8 = 0. Write 0 under ones.Step II: Subtract tens. 3 – 0 = 3. Write 3 under tens.Step III: Subtract hundreds. 6 – 1 = 5. Write 5 under hundreds.Step IV: Subtract thousands. 5 – 4 = 1. Write 1 under thousands.Step V: Subtract ten thousands. 7 – 3 = 4. Write 4 under ten thousands.Step VI: Subtract lakhs. 2 – 1 = 1. Write 1 under lakhs.Therefore, the difference is 141530
