### Subtract 3-Digit Numbers: Learn

How to subtract two-digit numbers (for example 658 - 472).
• Place one number above the other so that the hundreds', tens' and ones' places are lined up. Draw a line under the bottom number.  6 5 8 - 4 7 2
• Subtract the digits in the ones' place column (8 - 2 = 6) and place the answer below the line in the ones' place column.  6 5 8 - 4 7 2 6
• Subtract the numbers in the tens' place column (5 - 7 = ?). Since 7 is larger than 5, borrow one from the hundreds' place to make the top value larger than the bottom value. After this is done, subtract (15 - 7 = 8) and place the 8 below the line in the tens' place column.  5 15 6 5 8 - 4 7 2 8 6
• Subtract the digits in the hundreds' place column (5 - 4 = 1) and place the answer below the line in the hundreds' place column.  5 15 6 5 8 - 4 7 2 1 8 6
