Answer:
- 4,001 - 10,131 = - 14,132

The initial operation has become:

- 4,001 + 9,538 - 10,131 =


9,538 - 14,132

Now subtract the final numbers above:
9,538 - 14,132 = ?

The second number is larger than the first.

The answer will be negative (less than zero).


To subtract the numbers just reverse them:

14,132 - 9,538 = ?


But at the end attach a minus sign in front of the result.

Subtract the digits in the ones column:

2 - 8 = ?

The second digit is larger than the first.
Borrow from the next column to the left.

The borrowing is a two step process:


Subtract 1 from the top digit in the column of the tens: 3 - 1 = 2.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 3.
Write the answer above that digit: 2.


When borrowing, 1 ten = 10 ones.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the ones: 10 + 2 = 12.
