 2 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 4

### Subtract the digits in the tens column:

#### When borrowing, 1 hundred = 10 tens. Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the tens: 10 + 2 = 12.

 0 12 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 4

#### After borrowing, the subtraction has become: 12 - 3 = 10 + 2 - 3 = 10 + 2 - 3 = 2 + (10 - 3) = 2 + 7 = 9. 9 is the tens digit. Write it down at the base of the tens column.

 0 12 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 9 4

### Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:

#### When borrowing, 1 thousand = 10 hundreds. Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the hundreds: 10 + 0 = 10.

 3 10 12 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 9 4

#### After borrowing, the subtraction has become: 10 - 5 = 5. 5 is the hundreds digit. Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.

 3 10 12 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 5 9 4

### Subtract the digits in the thousands column:

#### When borrowing, 1 ten thousand = 10 thousands. Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the thousands: 10 + 3 = 13.

 0 13 10 12 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 5 9 4

#### After borrowing, the subtraction has become: 13 - 9 = 10 + 3 - 9 = 10 + 3 - 9 = 3 + (10 - 9) = 3 + 1 = 4. 4 is the thousands digit. Write it down at the base of the thousands column.

 0 13 10 12 1 4 1 3 12 - 9 5 3 8 4 5 9 4
