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

Add the digits in the ones column:

5 + 8 + 2 = 15

How did we add the digits? Explanation below.

Group the ones together in order to make tens:


5 + 8 + 2 =


5 + 8 + 2 =


5 + 10 =


10 + 5 =


15


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


The sum is a two-digit number: 15.


5 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.

Add the negative numbers together.

The operation to perform:
- 322 - 220

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.

And so on...


 322
+ 220

?

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

Add the digits in the ones column:

2 + 0 = 2

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

Add the digits in the hundreds column:

3 + 2 = 5

5 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.


 
 322
+ 220

 542

Addition result:

322 + 220 = 542

Answer:
- 322 - 220 = - 542

The initial operation has become:

275 - 322 - 220 + 468 + 342 =


1,085 - 542

Now subtract the final numbers above:
1,085 - 542 = ?

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 the digits in the ones column:

5 - 2 = 3.
3 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.

Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:

0 - 5 = ?

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 thousands: 1 - 1 = 0.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 1.
Write the answer above that digit: 0.


When borrowing, 1 thousand = 10 hundreds.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the hundreds: 10 + 0 = 10.

 0543

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:

0543 = 543

Final answer:
275 - 322 - 220 + 468 + 342 = 543

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.
