Add the digits in the tens column:

0 + 8 + 9 = 17

How did we add the digits? Explanation below.

Group the ones together in order to make tens:


0 + 8 + 9 =


8 + 9 =


1 + 7 + 9 =


1 + 7 + 9 =


(1 + 9) + 7 =


10 + 7 =


17

 787

Addition result:

144 + 196 + 196 + 251 = 787

Answer:
- 144 - 196 - 196 - 251 = - 787

The initial operation has become:

501 - 144 - 196 + 182 - 196 + 190 - 251 =


873 - 787

Now subtract the final numbers above:
873 - 787 = ?

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.

And so on...


 873
- 787

?

Subtract column by column; start from the column on the right

Subtract the digits in the ones column:

3 - 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: 7 - 1 = 6.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 7.
Write the answer above that digit: 6.


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


  6 
 8713
- 787

    

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
13 - 7 = 10 + 3 - 7 = 10 + 3 - 7 = 3 + (10 - 7) = 3 + 3 = 6.
6 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.

 8713
- 787

   6

Subtract the digits in the tens column:

7 6 - 8 = ?

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 + 6 = 16.


 716 
 8713
- 787

   6

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
16 - 8 = 10 + 6 - 8 = 10 + 6 - 8 = 6 + (10 - 8) = 6 + 2 = 8.
8 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.


 716 
 8713
- 787

  86

Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:

8 7 - 7 = 0.
0 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.

 8713
- 787

 086

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:

086 = 86

Final answer:
501 - 144 - 196 + 182 - 196 + 190 - 251 = 86
