Subtract the digits in the ones column:
1  2 = ?
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: 2  1 = 1.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 2.
Write the answer above that digit: 1.
When borrowing, 1 ten = 10 ones.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the ones: 10 + 1 = ^{1}1.
After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
11  2 = 10 + 1  2 = 10 + 1  2 = 1 + (10  2) = 1 + 8 = 9.
9 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.
Subtract the digits in the tens column:
2 1  9 = ?
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 hundreds: 8  1 = 7.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 8.
Write the answer above that digit: 7.
When borrowing, 1 hundred = 10 tens.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the tens: 10 + 1 = ^{1}1.
After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
11  9 = 10 + 1  9 = 10 + 1  9 = 1 + (10  9) = 1 + 1 = 2.
2 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.
Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:
8 7  2 = 5.
5 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.
   7  ^{1}1  
 2  1  8  2  ^{1}1 
    2  9  2 

   5  2  9 
Subtract the digits in the thousands column:
There is a single digit in this column: 1.
1 is the thousands digit.
Write it down at the base of the thousands column.
   7  ^{1}1  
 2  1  8  2  ^{1}1 
    2  9  2 

  1  5  2  9 
Subtract the digits in the ten thousands column:
There is a single digit in this column: 2.
2 is the ten thousands digit.
Write it down at the base of the ten thousands column.
   7  ^{1}1  
 2  1  8  2  ^{1}1 
    2  9  2 

 2  1  5  2  9 
Final answer:
421 + 3,018 + 18,382  232  60 = 21,529
