 1574

Addition result:

981 + 593 = 1,574

Answer:
- 981 - 593 = - 1,574

The initial operation has become:

- 981 + 2,040 - 593 + 375 =


2,415 - 1,574

Now subtract the final numbers above:
2,415 - 1,574 = ?

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 the digits in the ones column:

5 - 4 = 1.
1 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.

    1

Subtract the digits in the tens column:

1 - 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 hundreds: 4 - 1 = 3.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 4.
Write the answer above that digit: 3.


When borrowing, 1 hundred = 10 tens.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the tens: 10 + 1 = 11.

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
11 - 7 = 10 + 1 - 7 = 10 + 1 - 7 = 1 + (10 - 7) = 1 + 3 = 4.
4 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.

Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:

4 3 - 5 = ?

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

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


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

- 1574

   41

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
13 - 5 = 10 + 3 - 5 = 10 + 3 - 5 = 3 + (10 - 5) = 3 + 5 = 8.
8 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.

Subtract the digits in the thousands column:

2 1 - 1 = 0.
0 is the thousands digit.
Write it down at the base of the thousands column.

- 1574

 0841

Leading zeros

When leading zeros occupy the most significant digits of a natural number, they could be left blank and the numeric value stays the same:

0841 = 841

Final answer:
- 981 + 2,040 - 593 + 375 = 841
