First we have to subtract bottom digit in the units' place from the upper digit in the units' place.

i.e. we have to subtract 7 from 3. But 7 is bigger than 3.

So, we have to borrow one (one10) from the digit in tens' place i.e. 7.

Because of this borrowing, 3 in units' place becomes 13 and 7 in tens' place becomes 6.
Now subtract 7 from 13 which gives 6 in the units' place.

Now, we have to subtract bottom digit in the tens' place from the new upper digit in the tens' place.

i.e. we have to subtract 8 from 6. But 8 is bigger than 6.

So, we have to borrow one (one10) from the digit in hundreds' place i.e. 6.

Because of this borrowing, 6 in tens' place becomes 16, and 6 in hundreds' place becomes 5.

Now subtract 8 from 16 which gives 8 in the tens' place.

Now, we have to subtract bottom digit in the hundreds' place from the new upper digit in the hundreds' place.

i.e. we have to subtract 9 from 5. But 9 is bigger than 5.

So, we have to borrow one (one10) from the digit in thousands' place i.e. 5.

Again recall that,

When we borrow 1 from the immediate left digit, that borrowing makes the digit in the right place increase by 10. This is so, because the immediate left place value is 10 times the place value of the right.

Here the borrowing is applied from Thousands' place to the Hundreds' place.

Because of this borrowing, 5 in hundreds' place becomes 15 and 5 in thousands' place becomes 4.

Now subtract 9 from 15 which gives 6 in the hundreds' place.

Now subtract 1 from 4 which gives 3 in the thousands' place.

So the answer is 3686.

This process is shown in the vertical presentation above.

See 3 in the units' place is sriked off to become 13,

and 7 in the tens' place is sriked off to become 16,

6 in the hundreds' place is sriked off to become 15,

5 in the thousands' place is sriked off to become 4.

Thus 5673 - 1987 = 3686. Ans.

Check : You may add 3686 and 1987 and check whether it is equal to 5673 or not.

3686
1987
_{1}_{1}_{1}
----

It is verified to be correct.

Progressive Learning of Math : Subtraction Problems

Recently, I have found a series of math curricula (Both Hard Copy and Digital Copy) developed by a Lady Teacher who taught everyone from Pre-K students to doctoral students and who is a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.

This series is very different and advantageous over many of the traditional books available. These give students tools that other books do not. Other books just give practice. These teach students “tricks” and new ways to think.

These build a student’s new knowledge of concepts from their existing knowledge. These provide many pages of practice that gradually increases in difficulty and provide constant review.

These also provide teachers and parents with lessons on how to work with the child on the concepts.

The series is low to reasonably priced and include
