Addition result:

978 + 921 + 717 + 350 = 2,966

Answer:
- 978 - 921 - 717 - 350 = - 2,966

The initial operation has become:

- 978 + 1,042 - 921 - 717 - 350 + 521 =


1,563 - 2,966

Now subtract the final numbers above:
1,563 - 2,966 = ?

The second number is larger than the first.

The answer will be negative (less than zero).


To subtract the numbers just reverse them:

2,966 - 1,563 = ?


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


Method used below: column subtracting, from right to left (traditional)
