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

Add the digits in the ones column:

6 + 2 + 8 = 16

How did we add the digits? Explanation below.

Group the ones together in order to make tens:


6 + 2 + 8 =


6 + 2 + 8 =


6 + 10 =


10 + 6 =


16


Change the order in which the numbers are added, the sum stays the same.


The sum is a two-digit number: 16.


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


1 is the tens digit.
Carry it over to the tens column.
Write the digit above that column.
Add it with the rest of the digits in that column.

Answer:
1,036 + 572 + 388 = 1,996

The initial operation has become:

1,036 - 2,028 + 572 + 388 =


1,996 - 2,028

Now subtract the final numbers above:
1,996 - 2,028 = ?

The second number is larger than the first.

The answer will be negative (less than zero).


To subtract the numbers just reverse them:

2,028 - 1,996 = ?


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

Subtract the digits in the tens column:

2 - 9 = ?

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 non-zero top digit.
That is 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.


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 hundred = 10 tens.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the tens: 10 + 2 = 12.

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
12 - 9 = 10 + 2 - 9 = 10 + 2 - 9 = 2 + (10 - 9) = 2 + 1 = 3.
3 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.

 0032

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:

0032 = 32

The answer will be negative (less than zero):

1,996 - 2,028 = - 32

Final answer:
1,036 - 2,028 + 572 + 388 = - 32
