Subtract the numbers: - 58 - 71 = ? Calculate the numbers difference and learn how to do the subtraction, column subtracting method, from right to left

The operation to perform:
- 58 - 71

Add the numbers as if they were positive.

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

Method used below: column adding, 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.


  58
+  71

?

Add column by column; start from the column on the right.

Add the digits in the ones column:

8 + 1 = 9

9 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.


  
  58
+  71

   9

Add the digits in the tens column:

5 + 7 = 12

How did we add the digits? Explanation below.

Group the ones together in order to make tens:


5 + 7 =


5 + 7 =


3 + 2 + 7 =


3 + 2 + 7 =


(3 + 7) + 2 =


10 + 2 =


12


Change the order in which the numbers are added, the sum stays the same.
Break some number(s) into component parts, the sum stays the same.


The sum is a two-digit number: 12.


2 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.


1 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base, next to the tens digit.

  
  58
+  71

 129

Addition result:

58 + 71 = 129

Answer:
- 58 - 71 = - 129

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.


 52
- 37

?

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 = 12.


 4 
 512
- 37

   

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.


 4 
 512
- 37

  5

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.


 4 
 512
- 37

 15

Final answer: 52 - 37 = 15
