# Subtraction

The diagrams show examples of multi-digit subtraction

### Subtraction Without Borrowing

Reminder: We do not need to borrow if the first digit is large enough to subtract the second digit.

Example : 97 – 33 = 64

### Subtraction With Borrowing

We need to borrow if the first digit is smaller than the second digit.

Example : 91 – 77 = 14

The result of subtraction is called the difference of the numbers. In the above example, 14 is the difference of 91 and 77.

Example : 1,000 – 576 – 48 = 376
