Addition result:
458 + 694 + 101 + 1,947 = 3,200
Answer:
 458  694  101  1,947 =  3,200
The initial operation has become:
 458  694  101  1,947 + 74 =
74  3,200
Now subtract the final numbers above:
74  3,200 = ?
The second number is larger than the first.
The answer will be negative (less than zero).
To subtract the numbers just reverse them:
3,200  74 = ?
But at the end attach a minus sign in front of the result.
Stack the numbers on top of each other.
The ones digits line up in the first column from the right.
The tens digits line up in the next column to the left.
And so on...
Subtract column by column; start from the column on the right
Subtract the digits in the ones column:
0  4 = ?
The second digit is larger than the first.
Borrow from the next column to the left.
In this case we borrow across zero(s), a multiple step process:
Subtract 1 from the top digit in the column directly to the left.
But that digit is zero. You need to go further left.
Subtract 1 from the nearest column to the left with a nonzero top digit.
That is the column of the hundreds: 2  1 = 1.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 2.
Write the answer above that digit: 1.
Cross out the zero(s) that you were going across to the left: 0.
Write a 9 above each one of the crossed out zeros.
Why? In fact we have subtracted 1 from 20: 20  1 = 19.
When borrowing, 1 ten = 10 ones.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the ones: 10 + 0 = ^{1}0.
After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
10  4 = 6.
6 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.
Subtract the digits in the tens column:
0 9  7 = 2.
2 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.
Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:
There is a single digit in this column: 2 1.
1 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.
Subtract the digits in the thousands column:
There is a single digit in this column: 3.
3 is the thousands digit.
Write it down at the base of the thousands column.
The answer will be negative (less than zero):
74  3,200 =  3,126
Final answer:
 458  694  101  1,947 + 74 =  3,126

How to subtract numbers? Let's learn with an example
The operation to perform:
52  37
Method used below: column subtracting, from right to left (traditional)
Stack the numbers on top of each other.
The ones digits line up in the first column from the right.
The tens digits line up in the next column to the left.
Subtract column by column; start from the column on the right
Subtract the digits in the ones column:
2  7 = ?
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: 5  1 = 4.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 5.
Write the answer above that digit: 4.
When borrowing, 1 ten = 10 ones.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the ones: 10 + 2 = ^{1}2.
After borrowing the subtraction has become:
it2brw: 12  7 = 5.
5 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.
Subtract the digits in the tens column:
it1go: 5 4  3 = 1.
1 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.
Final answer: 52  37 = 15
