Addition result:

1,920 + 263 = 2,183

Answer:
- 1,920 - 263 = - 2,183

The initial operation has become:

893 - 1,920 + 450 - 263 =


1,343 - 2,183

Now subtract the final numbers above:
1,343 - 2,183 = ?

The second number is larger than the first.

The answer will be negative (less than zero).


To subtract the numbers just reverse them:

2,183 - 1,343 = ?


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

Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:

1 - 3 = ?

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: 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 + 1 = 11.

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
11 - 3 = 10 + 1 - 3 = 10 + 1 - 3 = 1 + (10 - 3) = 1 + 7 = 8.
8 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.

 0840

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:

0840 = 840

The answer will be negative (less than zero):

1,343 - 2,183 = - 840

Final answer:
893 - 1,920 + 450 - 263 = - 840
